Architectural hardware designer and manufacturer Krownlab today announced the appointments of Xavier Cuadrado as product operations manager and Abigail Morgan as production specialist, according to Krownlab founder and CEO Stefan Andrén.
“We’ve made significant investments in both product development and production staff,” Andren said. “Not only will they strengthen Krownlab’s product range and capacity for growth, but they will be integral in supporting our large-scale, commercial and hospitality projects.”
Cuadrado, an accomplished engineer, is responsible for managing product operations from late development through supply chain, QA, inventory, and production. He comes to Krownlab from Everlast Worldwide, where he was director of product development for the sporting goods company. Prior to that he was a lighting designer for West Elm Inc. He holds a Master’s Degree in industrial design from Pratt Institute and a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering from Princeton University.
Morgan works with three existing production team members to support Krownlab’s production manager and the product operations manager. She is responsible for quality assessment on incoming material, assembling hardware products, and bagging component kits. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from the University of Oregon.
Utilizing locally sourced steel, Krownlab fabricates its hardware in Portland, OR, and sells direct in the commercial architectural interiors market throughout North America. Stefan Andrén, a former product design director for Nike and Motorola, founded Krownlab in 2009 to develop high-quality architectural products that facilitate efficient, creative, and beautiful interior spaces. All Krownlab products feature an industry-leading 10-year warranty, and every component is manufactured from the highest-quality materials and individually tested before leaving its facility.
