MCLEAN, VA-The Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT) has elected Douglas K. Woods as AMT president.

Woods comes to AMT from Parlec Inc., a company that specializes in tooling, workholding and presetting solutions, where he was president. Prior to that post, he was president of Parlec International. Woods was a member of AMT’s board of directors from 2000 to 2008 and was chairman in 2005 to 2006. He also was chairman of the committee for AMT’s custom automated systems group.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for me to work at an association that promotes an industry I grew up in,” says Woods. “I have a great deal of respect for the staff at AMT and look forward to working with the members.”
