Mike Wolff, a longtime leader in manufacturing in Louisiana, was named as the next director of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership of Louisiana. Effective March 27, Wolff will lead MEPOL as it works to help all Louisiana manufacturers grow and compete.
MEPOL is operated by LCTCS in partnership with the National Institute of Standards and Technology and a national network of Manufacturing Extension Partnerships, based in every state. MEPOL provides a full range of services to manufacturers, including growth and cost-reduction strategies, website development and branding, process and quality improvement, engineering and prototyping, facility layout and leadership training. All activities are focused on increasing productivity, profitability and manufacturing success. MEPOL also can connect manufacturers to workforce development services offered by all 13 LCTCS colleges.
“I appreciate the opportunity to work with our community and technical colleges and support their efforts in meeting the dynamic workforce needs of our state’s manufacturers,” Wolff stated. “And more importantly, I look forward to connecting directly with manufacturers in each region of Louisiana and support their drive to aggressively compete and grow in today’s economy through continuous improvement, sustainability and innovation.”
Mike has an MBA from Tulane University and a bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering from Texas A&M University. He lives in Natchitoches and is married with three children.
