Stupp Corp., a division of Stupp Bros. Inc., revealed that Ed Scram has stepped down as president on June 1 and that the board of directors has elected Sean Clawges as the new president to succeed Scram.
Scram will be retiring from Stupp Corp. on June 30.
Scram joined Stupp Corp. as president in 2005 after a successful career in operations management at Weirton Steel Corp. During his fifteen-year tenure at Stupp, Ed led the company to expand its presence in the large-diameter line pipe market through construction of the two-step helical submerged arc weld pipe mill and through the addition of value-added services to Stupp’s product offering.
“We wish Ed well in a much deserved retirement and thank him for his efforts to grow Stupp Corporation from the small operation he inherited in 2005. As we work to reap the benefits that our larger business should provide, we thank Ed for his commitment to a smooth transition as we welcome Sean Clawges as the new President of Stupp Corporation,” John P. Stupp, Jr., CEO of Stupp Corp., said.
After spending over twenty years in the automotive sector, Clawges transitioned to the energy industry, joining Archrock (formerly Exterran Energy Solutions) in Houston, Texas. During his ten years at Archrock, Clawges held positions managing teams responsible for major project execution, manufacturing expansions, engineering, operations support, supply chain, shop operations, and business transformation efforts. In every role, Clawges successfully improved financial performance while maintaining a strong commitment to safety, quality, and production efficiency.
“I am incredibly excited to join Stupp Corporation and look forward to leveraging my past experiences to lead the company to produce the highest quality steel pipe for our customers as they build America’s critical pipeline infrastructure,” Clawges said. “Stupp Corporation is a fantastic company with a legacy of being the best in the industry. I look forward to continuing this legacy and working with the talented team John and Ed have assembled to position Stupp for a successful future.”
