ALTEX Wire and Cable is excited to announce the addition of Valente Luna as senior manufacturing engineer at the company’s plant in Nogales, México.

As a manufacturing engineer, Luna creates, implements and documents new procedures, introduces new products and ensures the coordination of engineering departments in order to maximize the productivity and quality of ALTEX’s manufacturing processes. 

Luna’s previous roles include process engineer and production supervisor for manufacturers of military, aerospace and medical products. He also has extensive knowledge in the design and implementation of poka-yoke fixturing, or “mistake-proofing” – a best practice ALTEX utilizes to guarantee people and processes work right the first time.

Luna has a degree in production systems engineering and is currently working toward his M.B.A at Universidad del Valle de México. A certified specialist on the IPC/WHMA-A-620 standard and a Six Sigma Green Belt, he brings to ALTEX experience in continuous improvement of quality and lean manufacturing practices.
