MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.—Fullerton Companies, a supplier of building materials, panelized building
components and building finish systems to the construction industry, has named Christopher M. Blake to the post of plant operations manager of its Fullerton Building Systems division, headquartered in Worthington, Minn. His appointment was announced by David Walock, president of the 134-year old firm.
“Chris is an experienced manufacturing operations executive,” said Walock. “He has years of experience in the manufacturing of modular and panelized building products for the commercial and residential construction sectors, and will be a strong addition to our rapidly growing Fullerton Building Systems division.”
Commenting on his appointment, Blake said “I’m excited to be part of Fullerton’s rapid growth and nationwide expansion, and I’m really looking forward to working with the great workforce the company has here in its Worthington manufacturing facility.” Fullerton’s panelized construction systems are marketed to fast food franchising organizations, leading multi-unit franchisees, and apartment and office developers across the country, and have grown significantly in popularity due to the speed and savings in labor costs they offer in delivering a new building.
Blake joins Fullerton from the Highland Manufacturing division of Champion Homes, also based in Worthington, where he headed operations for the past two years.
He previously was employed for more than a dozen years at Champion’s manufacturing facility in Topeka, Indiana. Prior to joining that firm in 2003, he worked as a golf professional and course manager.
A native of Indiana, Blake is a graduate of Trine University, Angola, IND, where he earned a bachelor of science degree in business management and golf management.
He and his wife and their six children make their home in nearby Brandon, SD.
