HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flexible Manufacturing (RCBI) has added Ashley T. Jackson to its staff at the Huntington Advanced Technology Center as a technical trainer.

Announcement of his appointment was made by RCBI Director and CEO Charlotte Weber.

A 1993 graduate of Ceredo-Kenova High School, he attended Ashland (Ky.) Community College in 1994 and 1995. Jackson began his career as a machinist with Mullins Brothers Machine Shop, Huntington, in 1997. He later worked with Pilgrim Glass Corp. in Ceredo, Southern Ohio Machine & Fabrication in Chesapeake, Ohio, and Industrial Machine & Fabrication, Huntington. Prior to joining RCBI he worked at the Allevard Sogefi auto suspensions plant at Prichard the past five years.

“Ashley Jackson is not a stranger to RCBI,” Ms. Weber said. “When he was employed at Mullins Brothers he spent a great deal of time at RCBI as that company took advantage of the opportunity to lease use of our advanced manufacturing equipment. Later, he introduced the Pilgrim Glass Corp. management to the resources RCBI has available and they made very effective use of that equipment. He’s a great addition to our training staff.”

Jackson and his wife, Traci, live at Prichard with their daughters, Shelby and Carley. His interests include golf, fishing and horticulture.

RCBI provides access to cutting edge technology and technical training to manufacturers across the region. Operating from Advanced Manufacturing Technology Centers in Huntington, South Charleston, Bridgeport and Rocket Center (near Keyser in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle), its mission includes developing a quality, just-in-time supplier base for the Department of Defense, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the commercial sector.
