Focused individuals eager to accelerate in a company environment have the opportunity for long-term careers with solid compensation in a manufacturing setting. That’s the message leaders at Mansfield Plumbing are conveying to potential employees.
As an example, company president Jim Morando cites Paul Stover, who started as a part-time cleanup person with Mansfield Plumbing 23 years ago and rose through the company to become vice president of manufacturing.
“This is the life story of how dedication and hard work can result in strong personal success,” says Jim Morando, president of Mansfield Plumbing. “Paul came to us in 1993 with a willingness to grow with our company. As a result, he tackled every challenge presented to him and has become an incredibly valuable part of our team.”
Promoted to vice president of manufacturing in November of 2013, Stover is now responsible for the entire sanitaryware manufacturing operation at the company’s Perrysville, Ohio facility. His days are filled with scheduling, cost and safety activities, along with a focus on continuous improvement methodologies, training and production levels of the toilets and lavatories manufactured at the facility.
“My career progressed naturally over time because this company provided me with many opportunities to learn and grow within the organization,” says Stover, a resident of Danville, Ohio. “Manufacturing careers aren’t generally glamorous, but when you align with a company that believes in their employees and takes care of them it’s easy to turn a job into a lifelong career.
“At Mansfield Plumbing we work together as a team towards a common goal. That single element makes this career rewarding.”
