Xue Mei “Sunny” is a strategic sourcing leader at Crane Merchandising Systems (CMS). She works on a procurement team in the St. Louis area. Her job there is to actively source the globe for the highest quality commodities at the most competitive prices. These are then used in the manufacturing of our vending machines. She holds a Technology Master of Mechanical Manufacture degree from Northeastern University in China, where she was born and raised. Her most recent assignment has given her the opportunity to come to the United States with Crane and to further grow and develop her experience and skill set. She began her career with Crane in our Crane Co. China Sourcing (CCCS) group which devotes itself to the mission of global commodity sourcing and procurement. In this role, Sunny was able to interact with the Supply Chain, Operation and Finance leaders across many Crane business segments, namely Aerospace Group, Barksdale in the Controls Group, Crane Limited, Crane Supply, and CMS. This has given her valuable insight into the operations of numerous Crane businesses as well as the Aerospace, Controls, Fluid Handling, Vending, and Building Supply Distribution industries.
