Mike Moehnke returned to Columbia Steel Casting Co., a manufacturer of cast steel replacement wear parts, as sales and marketing director.

In his new role, Moehnke will lead 10 district managers as they service current and potential customers. He will also oversee marketing initiatives.

“I am already feeling welcome as I work toward extending the tribal knowledge about the foundry and all parts of Columbia Steel that I accumulated over the 17 years I worked here,” Moehnke says. “Beyond offering a helping hand to many different departments, I aim to increase the success of both our customers and the company by serving as the communication link between our headquarters in Portland, Oregon, and our 10 district managers who are geographically dispersed.”

Moehnke began his Columbia Steel career as product engineer, working his way up to engineering manager before spending his last nine-plus years at the company as a district manager. Moehnke then spent seven years as vice president of engineering and sales at VR Steel.

Columbia Steel is a family-owned and operated business founded in 1901. The company employs 256 people.
