Major Wire Industries, a wholly owned subsidiary of Haver & Boecker, appointed Alain Durand as its new president and CEO. The company’s previous CEO, Jean Leblond, retired after 26 years as owner of the company.

Durand has more than 20 years of experience in the mining industry, including global management, strategic planning, operations management and finance. Major Wire Industries says its board of directors selected Durand to replace Leblond as the company’s president and CEO. Durand previously served as the company’s vice president of international sales.

“Major has grown significantly and succeeded under [Leblond’s] leadership,” Durand says. “I am grateful that the succession process allowed me to work with him. I share his belief in the power of people and in his unwavering commitment to customers.”

Employees at Major Wire look forward to working with Durand.

“Alain has deep expertise in business development and the mining industry, and we have every confidence that he will continue his record of success in his new role at Major,” says Walter Haver, board chair and co-managing director of Haver & Boecker.

Major Wire Industries designs, manufactures and markets screen media solutions, including Flex-Mat High-Performance Media, Optimum Wire and stainless steel woven wire cloth for the quarry, mining, recycling and other related markets.
