Effective Jan. 1, 2012, Nathan R. Andrews of Syracuse, N.Y., has assumed the office of president at Morse Manufacturing Co., the East Syracuse-based manufacturer of industrial drum handling
equipment. The office was previously held by Robert R. Andrews who has announced his anticipated retirement as president but will maintain his Chairmanship of the company. Nathan graduated from the University of Vermont in 1997 with a Bachelors of Science in Engineering Management. He has continued his education at Lemoyne College toward a Masters of Business Administration. Prior to joining Morse he worked as a consultant in emerging technology markets in the Boston area.

Founded in 1923, Morse Manufacturing has established itself as the premier brand of industrial drum handling equipment around the world. Now under a third generation of leadership as a
family business, the company’s values and conservatism have allowed it to continue to prosper over decades of challenging environments.

Joining the firm in 1943, Ralph Andrews’ original equipment concepts were eagerly accepted and quickly became an entirely new category of industrial products: drum handling equipment. In 1969, the second generation, Robert Andrews joined Morse and continued to pioneer innovative products and introduce them to foreign markets. The third generation, Nathan Andrews joined the company in 2002 and has continued to stay ahead of the market through technological advances in the current information age.

Over three generations Morse has continued to support industry organizations such as the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY), the Material Handling Industry of America
(MHIA), the Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA) as well as the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).

By reflecting on the past and looking toward the future, Morse has situated itself to maintain its leadership role in the industry for decades to come. The current change in leadership will serve to
strengthen an already strong organization and allow Morse to continue its legacy.
