BATON ROUGE, LA, June 16, 2020 -- Stupp Corporation, a division of Stupp Bros., Inc., announced today that Ed Scram has stepped down as President on June 1st and that the Board of Directors has elected Sean Clawges as the new President to succeed Mr. Scram. Mr. Scram will be retiring from Stupp Corporation on June 30th.


Mr. Scram joined Stupp Corporation as President in 2005 after a successful career in operations management at Weirton Steel Corp. During his fifteen-year tenure at Stupp, Ed led the Company to expand its presence in the large-diameter line pipe market through construction of the two-step helical submerged arc weld pipe mill and through addition of value-added services to Stupp’s product offering.


John P. Stupp, Jr., CEO of Stupp Corporation, said, “When Ed started in 2005, we were operating the HFW Mill on a one-shift basis, and the fracking boom was in its infancy in the U.S. Ed was an integral part of establishing the growth strategy to expand our HFW operations and took responsibility for all aspects of designing and constructing a facility to enter the SAWH arena. We wish Ed well in a much-deserved retirement and thank him for his efforts to grow Stupp Corporation from the small operation he inherited in 2005. As we work to reap the benefits that our larger business should provide, we thank Ed for his commitment to a smooth transition as we welcome Sean Clawges as the new President of Stupp Corporation.”


Mr. Clawges began his career in the automotive industry, holding operations management positions of increasing responsibility at General Motors, The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, and Dana Holding Corporation. During those experiences, Mr. Clawges was responsible for safety, quality, productivity, and maintenance. After spending over twenty years in the automotive sector, he transitioned to the energy industry, joining Archrock (formerly Exterran Energy Solutions) in Houston, Texas. During his ten years at Archrock, Mr. Clawges held positions managing teams responsible for major project execution, manufacturing expansions, engineering, operations support, supply chain, shop operations, and business transformation efforts. In every role, Mr. Clawges successfully improved financial performance while maintaining a strong commitment to safety, quality, and production efficiency.


“I am incredibly excited to join Stupp Corporation and look forward to leveraging my past experiences to lead the Company to produce the highest quality steel pipe for our customers as they build America’s critical pipeline infrastructure,” Clawges said. “Stupp Corporation is a fantastic company with a legacy of being the best in the industry. I look forward to continuing this legacy and working with the talented team John and Ed have assembled to position Stupp for a successful future.”
