John Lyons BE
I am a Die Casting Expert for Aluminium/Magnesium/Zinc with more than 30 years of experience in the industry. Starting as a foundry engineer I progressed to foundry manager, operational manager and then managing director where I was a shareholder in the company.
My track record of success includes reorganising, restructuring, cost reduction programs, producing die cast parts with very low levels of rejects, technical development, quality improvement programs, maximising asset utilisation, lean manufacturing, and outsourcing the manufacturing of products to Asia, etc.
Since 2009 I have worked internationally with more than 100 companies as a die casting consultant in Australia, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Germany, Holland, Italy, India, Ireland, Japan, Lithuania, Malaysia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, UK, USA, etc.
Between July 2014 to December 2015 I lead the turnaround in the high pressure die casting plants of a large die casting Group in Europe that went bankrupt. This was the biggest turn around of its kind in Europe. The Group with annual sales €440 million consisted of 22 casting/machining/assembly companies. On the successful completion of this project the plants were sold to an Italian bank. There was an article written about my work and a reference letter from COO is available.
Bachelor Degree in Engineering, UCD, Ireland.
Resume available on request.
I can develop die casting programs in your facility or in your die casting supplier's facilities anywhere in the world.
I have been Liability Expert in complex cases with multiparty involvement.
