Barnard is tasked with improving current inventory management and maximizing inventory turnover for the automotive aftermarket and restoration manufacturer. Barnard describes joining Classic Tube as becoming “part of a team that is a global leader in the industry, yet still has the feeling of a family business.”
Barnard arrives at Classic Tube with extensive supervising proficiency. After seven years of overseeing Goodyear Dunlop Tires of North America’s motorcycle subdivision, Barnard most recently acted as Production Supervisor at Compass Minerals in Lackawanna, NY. His new responsibilities as Production Manager at Classic Tube include the oversight, monitoring and scheduling of the plant’s many production and maintenance processes, as well as supervising and leading the team.

We’re confident in Larry Barnard’s ability to reinforce these high standards while simultaneously increasing our efficiency.”
Barnard, who received a master’s in Business Administration from Medaille College, credits the support of his wife and five children with his success, citing a balance between family life, work and continuing education as his greatest achievement. “I never could have done it without my wife Molly’s help,” says Barnard, “Molly was always supportive and I never heard her complain once.” Barnard’s family boasts several other classic car enthusiasts. Having previously owned a 1966 GTO and a 1959 El Camino, Barnard is currently helping his son restore a 1963 T-Bird.
