Smith-Midland hires Corbett as operations VP

Kevin Corbett
Kevin Corbett has joined Smith-Midland Corp. as its vice president of operations.

Mr. Corbett has responsibility for the Midland-based company’s production, delivery and installation of precast concrete products and services. The company has plants in Southern Fauquier, North Carolina and South Carolina.

“His experience leading large manufacturing operations and leading continuous improvement programs that improved the safety, quality, on-time delivery and costs at those operations will help Kevin as he leads our organization further along our path of continuous improvement through lean manufacturing,” CEO Ashley B. Smith said.

In 2015, Mr. Corbett joined Oldcastle Building Envelope, the largest glass curtain wall fabricator in North America, serving as plant manager in its Tampa and Westbrook, Maine ,facilities. While at Oldcastle, he studied and implemented lean manufacturing, a continuous improvement methodology that aligns with the Smith-Midland philosophy.

A U.S. Marine Corps veteran, he has a master’s degree in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in history. After graduating in 2009, Mr. Corbett took a commission in the USMC, where he served as an infantry captain, assigned to 1st Battalion 3rd Marine Regiment in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, and then the Marine Corps Security Force Regiment at the Naval Weapons Station in Yorktown.

“This is a passionate group of leaders at Smith-Midland,” said Mr. Corbett, a native of Syracuse, N.Y. “From Ashley Smith himself, all the way down, everyone is very engaged and passionate about making the organization as good as it can possibly be, which includes the lean implementation, but also with regard to the creation of revenue streams and finding ways to increase profitability without increasing operating costs.”
