Jeff Fedorchak To Retire From Brake Parts Inc

Fedorchak served as vice president of global operations, and “has been instrumental in shaping BPI’s global operations footprint for over 20 years,” said David Overbeeke, president and CEO of Brake Parts Inc.

Jeff Fedorchak, vice president of global operations, will retire from Brake Parts Inc (BPI) as of Sept. 30. It was announced by David Overbeeke, president and CEO of Brake Parts Inc.

“Jeff has been instrumental in shaping BPI’s global operations footprint for over 20 years,” said Overbeeke. ”His manufacturing expertise and exceptional leadership allowed him to effectively manage BPI’s multiple plant operations across the globe and his extensive experience in implementing lean manufacturing techniques has provided us with a competitive advantage in the markets where we compete.”

Fedorchak joined BPI in 1994 as the manufacturing manager at the former McHenry, Illinois, rotor and drum manufacturing plant. In 1997, he was promoted to plant manager in the Cuba, Missouri, stamping and disc pad manufacturing plant. In 2004, Fedorchak assumed the responsibilities of the director of friction manufacturing in McHenry. He was promoted to his current position in 2013 and, with the acquisition of Remy Power Products in 2016, the North American rotating electrical manufacturing operations were added to Fedorchak’s responsibilities.

Prior to joining BPI, Fedorchak worked for 15 years in the roller bearing industry serving the automotive, commercial and military aircraft and industrial markets.

“Jeff’s hard work, commitment and dedication to BPI is much appreciated and will be felt for years to come,” said Overbeeke. “On behalf of all the employees at Brake Parts Inc, I would like to thank Jeff for his many contributions to our company and wish him all the best that retirement has to offer.”
