About Bob Collett: Italian conglomerate Umbra Group wanted to see more growth from its Everett-based aerospace company when it hired General Electric’s Robert Collett to run the operation in May 2009. Collett’s experience on the manufacturing floor as well as his ability to make tough and well calculated business decisions led Umbra Cuscinetti to renewed success. Under Collett's leadership, costs came down and reliability in getting parts out the door on time went up. Umbra, which makes ball screws, drive rods and other parts for the operating surface flaps on aircraft, is well on its way to achieving a goal of doubling sales in three years. The parent company in Italy, which debated whether to keep the Everett operation going, is now considering having the facility take on fabrication of other products in its lineup.  Collett’s commitment and drive for constant change and improvement has transformed Umbra into a model of Lean Manufacturing.
