Mr. Bierig is the Engineering Manager, holds eight oil and gas patents and a contributing member of the HOSS Management Team. He is responsible for development and execution of strategic planning initiatives and allocation of engineering resources across HOSS Pump Systems. He leads and directs the day-to-day operations of all production-related departments tactically and strategically and provides professional advice and technical direction to deliver on time while developing and maintaining a culture of accountability. Mr. Bierig drives the continuous improvement of safety, resource management, department performance, productivity efficiencies and first quality engineered products and deliverables. He contributes to business growth opportunities often assisting with application design specifications and recommendations. Mr. Bierig ensures the flow of information and materials to accommodate manufacturing schedules and on-time delivery to HOSS customers.
He joined HOSS because of the skilled, experienced team members who are the best at what they do and share a culture of teamwork, innovation and exceptional customer service. For Mr. Bierig, it means HOSS teams aren’t driven by a corporate system and can be more agile and efficient allowing the them to go out and perform engineering improvements quickly for a customer or respond to a situation and offer solutions within hours, instead of weeks.
Prior to HOSS, Mr. Bierig worked at Baker Hughes (Centrilift and Corporate) for over 25 years in varying engineering and management roles. He started as an Engineer and held a variety of engineering positions over the first 12 years before advancing into Engineering Management over New Product Development. He then moved into a Product Development Management role where he managed a large portfolio of cross-divisional projects. Later, in his role as Engineering Manager of New Product Development, his talents were again focused on developments for pump and seal product lines before being promoted to Value Engineering to identify and implement cost improvement initiatives for the Artificial Lift product line.
Mr. Bierig enlisted and attended the Marine Corps boot camp in San Diego, CA immediately following high school. After three and a half years in the US Marine Corps, he switched to the US Army and retired nearly 22 years later as an officer with a specialty in Construction Engineering. While in the US Army, Mr. Bierig was deployed to Iraq leading personnel and combat operations and attached to a Marine Corp element. He effectively used his prior experience as a Marine to bridge the gap between the two service cultures by aligning their common objectives and his guys’ training and capabilities toward a common goal.
