Leadership Team

Meet the Congruent CS Team 

John Stingel

President

I began working with industrial automation services in 1981, long before the IoT began to take off. Over the years, I progressed from field work, handling industrial mechanical services, through the ranks to VP of Operations. In this role, I was accountable to all field operations, mechanical and electrical services, as well as manufacturing processes.

When the family-owned business was sold and I completed my obligations for employment, I realized that I wanted to continue developing new industrial material handling and automation technologies.

Congruent Concepts & Solutions, LLC was born from my years of experience and developed expertise in the design, fabrication, installation and integration of automation equipment and processes. The name for the company came from my desire to guide companies by creating concepts and implementing solutions that work together for the greater good, and maintain consistency and compatibility.

We continue to expand our horizons with projects both large and small, and with new custom concepts and solutions for our customers.

Industries of Expertise:
• Automotive • Beverage • Distribution • Industrial • Pharmaceutical

Jeff Anderson

Solutions Specialist

Jeff began his career in manufacturing with a small, family owned business. The core competencies were injection molding, aluminum die cast, CNC machining, and both mechanical and electrical assembly and test.

Jeff started at entry level and worked his way through the plant doing just about every job in the building. His years in maintenance were the most interesting.

To look back at the way things were done years ago as compared to the automation that is in place today, it is astounding. Jeff truly enjoyed combining several mundane tasks to a level of automation so that one operator could handle several machines. If someone told him it couldn’t be done, he would form a team with the in-house maintenance, tooling, and process engineering groups and challenge them for a solution. They put their heads together and always came up with a cost effective solution.

Jeff’s many years in management were the most rewarding. Traveling, meeting customers and resolving issues provided valuable insight and education.

Starting a new career with CCS is somewhat of a repeat – small business with a group of very smart and talented people, all eager to learn from each other’s expertise and take on new challenges as a team to bring an elevated level of concepts and solutions to the customer.

Jeff brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and is a large part of elevating the customer experience. We all look forward to his long career.
