Khani will now serve as Senior Vice President of Operations, Supply Chain and Product/Manufacturing Engineering, responsible for the company's entire manufacturing, supply chain, and operations.
"We recently expanded our efforts domestically and internationally to bring new markets and customers 'kitchens that think'," noted Chairman Ben Koether.

During Khani's first tenure at FAST, he introduced Surface Mount Technology (SMT), subsequently launched three new SMT technology product families, spearheaded product transition to ROHS compliance, and improved on-time deliveries to 99% through lean manufacturing, among other achievements.
