DPS: Could you introduce us some of your personal background information? When did you join TW Metals? And what’s your position?
Steel Beams for Nuclear Cranes.
Randolph F. Gounder: Hello, I am the Vice President and General Manager of TW-Nuclear Materials Solutions. I joined TW Metals in 2007 to start up the nuclear business unit to focus on the nuclear market. My background starts as a machinist working for Westinghouse. While working for Westinghouse, I attended college and obtained a Mechanical Engineering degree. I then worked for the US Department of Energy as Nuclear Engineer. I next went to Ionics Incorporated which made complex components for the nuclear industry. At Ionics, I wrote an ASME Section III “N” QA program working as the QA Manager. I obtained certification from the American Society of Nondestructive Testing as a Level III for Visual, Penetrant, Magnetic Particle, Ultrasonic, Radiographic and Leak testing. I was also certified by the American Welding Society as a Certified Welding Inspector. In addition, I was the Radiation Safety Officer and a Nuclear Lead Auditor. Subsequently I became the Operations Manager, General Manager, Group General Manager and Vice President of the company. During that time I obtained an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University. Ionics was later acquired by General Electric Nuclear where I worked for to intergrate the company into GE. The background of my nuclear team and myself provides a unique “hands on” understanding of nuclear requirements which is beneficial to the customers we partner with in the nuclear industry.
