ST. LOUIS, MO – Foreman Fabricators, Inc. is proud to announce the promotion of Andrew Ehlmann to Vice President. In September of this year, Brian Foreman of Foreman Fabricators retired and sold the company to long-time employee, Rob Rolves, who served as VP for almost 25 years. With Rolves taking the helm, it was critical to fill that daily operational management role, and Ehlmann was the perfect choice.
Ehlmann is a graduate of the Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla where he earned his degree in Engineering Management with an emphasis in Mechanical Engineering. After years of working in continuous improvement roles in manufacturing and distribution, he landed at Foreman in 2015. He immediately made a positive impact, improving operational efficiency through stringent project oversight.
With Rolves mentoring him since his arrival, he’s well prepared to take over daily operations and help with the company’s overall strategic planning. Rolves says quite plainly, “Andrew is ready for this. He’s already helped us grow the business significantly, and he’s got a lot more to offer. He will be absolutely great at this role.”
Ehlman says he’s excited. “Foreman has a reputation for delivering decorative products like glass railings, architectural metal items, cladding, counter tops, brake metal – items all over a commercial construction project. Our work is visible in almost every major construction project done in St. Louis in the last 30 or 40 years, so you’ve probably seen or even touched something we made. How cool is that?”, says Ehlmann. “Customers stick with us because they know our guys put out solid products and we truly care about getting projects done on budget and on time. My goal is to constantly focus on every little thing that can make that even better. It’s all I think about.”
