Universal Engraving appoints new president

Ross Hutchison has taken the reins as president of Universal Engraving

Ross Hutchison has taken the reins as president of Universal Engraving (UE), a position held by his father, Larry, and grandfather, company founder Glenn E. Hutchison.

According to UE, under Ross Hutchison’s leadership, the company will continue to revolutionize the embossing and foil stamping industry with new ways to maximize customer uptime, productivity, and profitability. 

‘Our guiding philosophy is never to stop innovating,’ said Ross Hutchison. ‘While the latest innovation may seem like the final step in a long journey, it’s in fact just the beginning of a new one. Innovation should be for the benefit of the customer, not just for the company doing the innovating. It is imperative that we maintain the highest tolerances, as well as extreme precision and unparalleled image integrity,’

Hutchison feels confident in achieving his goals by relying on the established UE operations team, managed by Todd Rima, vice president of operations and sales, and Austin Hutchison, vice president of manufacturing for North America. 

‘We believe in being a true partner to our customers, someone they can trust and rely on,’ added Ross Hutchison. ‘UE has always been an innovative company. If a client wants something to happen—no matter how difficult it may be—the team will do everything in their power to make it happen.’

Larry Hutchison will continue to play a role in the business, while Glenn E. Hutchison will take a reduced role.
