Bloom Mfg. Announces New General Manger

As part of Entegra Attachments LLC’s recent acquisition of Iowa based, Bloom Manufacturing LLC, a hydraulic winch and speed reducer company, Joshua Weig has been selected to lead the 110-year-old company, based in Independence, Iowa.

Mark Collett, former owner and current president of Bloom Manufacturing, who along with his wife Deborah who manages accounting and human resources for the company, will be retiring later this year.

Collett says: “As part of the company transaction and leadership transition plan, it was imperative that we select our new leader based on their strong engineering expertise, familiarity with the business and customer base, as well as positive fit with our people centered values and culture. Our new owners and I agreed that Josh fit the bill.”

Weig, a former engineering manager of the company, will report in his new leadership role directly to Michael Flannery, CEO of Saint Charles, Illinois based Entegra Attachments, Bloom’s parent company.

“For all the reasons that Mark Collett indicated,” Flannery says, “along with Josh’s well rounded experience, serving in various customer service, design engineering and management positions within the specialty equipment, truck and trailer industry, Josh is well equipped to lead the future growth and development of this unique winch and speed reducer manufacturer.”
