Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has named Jeff Schumaker director of modular manufacturing.

"Schumaker will be responsible for Cooper's pursuit of leveraging lean concepts, technology and existing equipment to create manufacturing areas -- which may be modules, cells or mini-plants -- that can make low-volume, high-complexity products, reserving traditional manufacturing for high-volume runs," say Cooper officials.

Since joining Cooper in 1988, Schumaker has worked as a development engineer, tire testing manager and SUV/light truck tire development manager, in addition to a variety of other positions.
