SP Industries, Inc (SP) has announced the appointment of Kevin Sutherby as its new President. Mr. Sutherby is a seasoned executive with 15+ years’ experience leading global manufacturing companies, including senior leadership positions at Danaher and Fortive, and most recently as Senior Vice President at Lean Focus LLC, a consulting firm that assists clients in developing and implementing lean solutions.

SP was acquired by ATS in December 2021, to better support the needs of customers throughout the lifecycle of pharmaceutical development and production, as well as in diagnostics, broader life sciences and applied sciences applications. The implementation of the ATS Business Model (ABM) for disciplined, continuous improvement is a key part of this process, providing problem-solving tools and a template for eliminating waste and driving process improvement. As a driven advocate of embracing lean and continuous improvement methodologies, Mr Sutherby will oversee these processes to enable SP to develop its product range, performance and service for its customers.

“I’m really looking forward to spearheading the next chapter in SP’s success and developing our aseptic and non-aseptic lyophilization portfolio, fill-finish solutions, and life science portfolio within the ATS family of companies,” said Mr Sutherby. “Our focus on customer-driven innovation and lean efficiency will ensure we provide the best solutions for the pharmaceutical, biotech and allied industry sectors.”

Cash Mahesh, Group Executive – Life Sciences Group at parent company ATS said: “We welcome Kevin as SP’s new President.
