He moved to the foundry division of Newport News Shipbuilding in 1968 and during the next eight years served as general superintendent, manufacturing engineering manager and foundry division manager.

In 1977, Jennings joined Cooper Industries as manager of its Springfield, OH foundry and later manager of the Cooper-Bessemer unit at Grove City, PA. He was engineering manager for American Standard, Louisville, KY, before coming to AFS last year.
