With the untimely passing of Art Morrison Enterprises Vice President Craig Morrison, long-time AME employee Matt Jones will be taking over as operations manager, the company announced.
Jones joined AME in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Central Washington University. He worked hand-in-hand with company founder Art Morrison, and as the company grew, Jones ascended to the roll of lead engineer, ultimately supervising a trio of other chassis and suspension experts, the company said, and was the prime motivator in the development of the AME Multi-Link I.R.S.
An automotive enthusiast all his life, Jones’ silver 1969 Camaro became the development “mule” for many of AME’s suspension components, the company said.
“Losing Craig was a tremendous shock. He was like a brother to me,” Jones said. “I hope to carry on with his visions and represent Art Morrison Enterprises to the best of my abilities.”
