“As we move forward, it is a huge benefit to be able to get advice from Bob, one of the industry’s most influential and visionary leaders. Bob joins our organization at the right time, as we continue to expand production capacity with a new plant opening in Mexico to extend our US just-in-time manufacturing and Asian manufacturing,” said Brooks Mayberry, chief executive officer for Katzkin.

“Katzkin is on the forefront of revolutionizing vehicle interior customization. I am looking forward to working with Katzkin’s executive team to help them further push the boundaries of this emerging category,” Bob Lutz added.
