Atlas Pressed Metals president Jude Pfingstler has been named one of the Top 100 Business Leaders in Central Pennsylvania, USA for 2015.

The Top 100 Business Leaders is a list developed by business journal ‘Pennsylvania Business Central,’ which honors the region’s top executives, business and community leaders who have made a major impact in their community or industry over the past year.

‘Our goal is not to be the largest company, but to develop a good business that provides good wages to support families that support our community,’ said Pfingstler. ‘And as we’ve grown, we continue to be able to improve upon the caliber of people we bring on board. This makes us even stronger as a business.’

Pfingstler has worked at Atlas since he was in high school in the mid-1990s. After graduating from college, he came into the company as a customer service rep, moving up to the position of sales manager in 2003. He has also served as production manager. In 2010, the company leadership developed a strategic/succession plan, and it was at that time that Jude Pfingstler succeeded his father, Richard ‘Dick’ Pfingstler, as president of the company. The powdered metal company serves the automotive, lawn and garden, appliance, meters and industrial and commercial equipment industries and employs about 90 people.
