Jim Jereckos, a former director of engineering with several years experience in the POP industry and over 20 combined years of experience in engineering, manufacturing and quality management, has been named to the new position of Director of Process and Product Integrity for AMD Industries, based in Cicero, Illinois.
The announcement was made by AMD Industries’ President and CEO, David Allen, who commented, “We are pleased to have Jim head up this important new company initiative. Jim will provide a focus on our internal processes of design, engineering, manufacturing and quality assurance. It will bring to AMD a more formalized and disciplined approach to these critical areas.”
“We take great pride in producing a quality product, which we stand behind 100%. Our clients expect it. The demand for shorter and shorter lead times leaves little, if any room for error. In the end, the integrity of our processes will ultimately determine the integrity of our product.”
AMD has been in continuous operation in the in-store merchandising industry for 85 years.
“My goal at AMD is to review existing processes, recommend procedural enhancements and verify product integrity through testing and appraisal to insure that through our Quality Management Systems we achieve customer satisfaction with the highest quality products and with on-time delivery” Jereckos tells Marketing At Retail Magazine.
Jereckos is a graduate from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York and is relocating to the Chicago area with his wife Marcia.

Retail, and the Healthy Child

By Jim Davidson, Polsinelli Shalton Welte Suelthaus The year 2007 will go down as a benchmark year for food manufacturing and advertising industry achievements designed to address the issue of childhood obesity in America.  Nevertheless, in spite of major leaps forward to change the nature of advertising directed at children under 12 years of age, and the introduction of a broad range of new “better for you” products, the pressure continues to mount in Washington, D.C. to adopt new regulatory restrictions or enact new legislation designed to regulate the advertising of food products.   All this is taking place during a year in which U.S. Senators Sam Brownback (R-KS) and Tom Harkin (D-IA), and Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin, have overseen the collaboration by a Joint Task Force on Childhood Obesity and the Media that is working to complete a comprehensive report to document the numerous programs initiated by f
