Pearce replaces Rod Lee who retired on 31 December 2013 after serving as Tencarva Machinery president for 16 years.

“I am honoured that the board of directors of Tencarva Machinery Co has chosen me to be the company’s fourth president. Our founders and past leaders have built a wonderful company, and I am very mindful of that. We have tremendous, dedicated employees; we represent the top manufacturers of engineered products; and we have a diversified and thriving customer base – all of which bode well for our future,” said Pearce.

Pearce has served as secretary/treasurer and controller of Tencarva for the last 13 years.

“Ed has guided us through the transition into the electronic age in our business systems. He has maintained the 'tight ship' in the Accounting Department while growing substantially to meet the needs of the much larger company we have become. I don’t know any company that operates more efficiently or effectively than Tencarva in that area. His skills and good judgment have also contributed greatly to Tencarva’s success in adding to our business via acquisition,” said Lee. “We anticipate a smooth transition as the management changes evolve, as we have been preparing for it for years.”

Lee, who retired after a 36 year-career at Tencarva Machinery, will remain on the company’s board of directors.
