Victor Group Appoints Roy to Head Residential Unit
May 14, 2011-- Home Textiles Today,
SAINT-GEORGES, QUEBEC - Fabric producer Victor Group, which bought Quaker in 2007 and Craftex in 2009, has restructured its residential business unit and named Martin Roy as its general manager.
Roy will oversee everything from operations to sales, design, research and development for residential.
He was previously materials manager in charge of purchasing, planning, production and distribution. He worked in upper management at two large manufacturers prior to returning to Victor Group in January 2010 as director of operations for the Fall River, Mass. plant.
The company said the realignment of the Victor Group is necessitated by continued growth in the residential unit. Roy and his team will focus on the company's residential business to establish closer working relationships with customers, enhance design direction and alignment, and maintain customer service and reliability.
Besides the residential unit, Victor Group is active in the contract, outdoor, apparel and specialty markets.
