HISUN USA Adds Michael Jernigan as North American Plant Supervisor

Jernigan is tasked with optimizing the company's assembly line processes and managing assembly staff.

As HISUN USA expands its footprint in the North American side-by-side market, the company is pleased to welcome Michael Jernigan to its management team as plant supervisor. In his new role, Jernigan has been tasked with optimizing and enhancing the company’s assembly line processes and managing and leading assembly staff at its North American facility in McKinney, Texas.

Before joining HISUN, Michael Jernigan served as an engineer for Douglas Lockheed Martin and Boeing and was part of the ISO certification process at Boeing. He understands the sales mindset because of his background in car dealership financing and general management. He began his tenure at HISUN as a line supervisor before being promoted to the new role of Plant Supervisor.

Jernigan loves managing and motivating teams. With a well-rounded skillset, he will be a valuable asset in his new role as he looks to maximize HISUN’s assembly line processes. He will streamline quality control (QC) processes and procedures while improving overall operating efficiency by working with team members toward increased productivity. Jernigan will also assist with day-to-day employee administrative needs, ensuring each team member has the tools, training and support needed to do his or her job as efficiently as possible.

“My number-one goal is to make sure new units hit the truck while I also try to make sure my crew is happy,” stated Jernigan. “Because if they’re not happy, they’re not producing. It’s a family mentality here; we spend every day together, so it’s a matter of ensuring we’re here for each other.”

“Michael’s engineering background, mechanical aptitude and willingness to roll up his sleeves to get the job done and resolve any issues that may arise make him a vital addition to the HISUN team,” explained Vice President of Operations Jamie Cheek. “We’re thrilled to add Michael as our new plant supervisor, as he’s tasked with further improving our quality control and assembly line efficiencies.”

With an easygoing management style and a hands-on approach to problem-solving, Jernigan will undoubtedly be an asset to the HISUN USA management team while further streamlining its North American operations. Welcome to the team, Michael Jernigan!
