New Plant Manager Meet and Greet

Darke County Economic Development introduces new area plant managers.

Thanks to Bob Robinson of County News Online for this article.

GREENVILLE - “It’s been an easy transition,” said Billy Bryant, new plant manager for Florida Production Engineering in New Madison. Bryant said everyone in Darke County is nice and friendly… an easy transition. 

Jim Dura, new plant manager from the FRAM Group, had the same story to tell regarding his transition seven months earlier from Erie, Penn. 

“I love Darke County,” he said. “My wife loves it, loves the people.” 

Darke County Economic Development Director Marc Saluk held a “Meet & Greet” at the Bistro Off Broadway for six new Darke County plant managers on May 21. While only four of the managers were able to attend, they were greeted by more than 100 public officials, members of the P4P (Partnering for Progress) and the general public. 

Whirlpool’s plant manager Ken Hossler has been in Darke County for about a year. He was equally impressed with the community that hosts Darke County’s largest manufacturer. 

“It’s a great community,” he said. “I love the small town ‘can do’ attitude here.” Hossler, a long-time Whirlpool employee, was reassigned from Findlay, Ohio. 

The exception to Darke County’s new arrivals is Greenville’s Continental Carbonic plant manager Rocky Harrison. The former Ansonia Police Department employee is a native of Darke County. 

Unable to attend were Jim McIntosh, manager of PolyOne, formerly Spartech, and Daryl Means, manager of Klockner Pentaplast, both in Greenville.
