Reading, PA — Remcon Plastics, Inc., a leading roto-molding company, is proud to announce the hiring of John Emmons as its new Chief Operating Officer. John brings over 40 years of experience in manufacturing and operations management with broad experience working in a Fortune 500 publicly-traded company, a family-owned/professionally managed business, and several private equity companies. Instead of retiring, he elected to join Remcon to help grow the people, processes, and products in a refreshing and positive environment.

Peter Connors, current President, who founded the business in 1982, is pleased to have John in this leadership role, “John has always been a believer that the most important role of a senior executive is to develop the employees and help them reach their full potential and in so doing create long term security and profitability for all involved. As the second generation of my family steps up to continue to grow the company, I could not think of a better person to help Remcon develop a more robust management process than John.”

Starting as a chemical engineer out of college, John quickly gravitated to manufacturing, believing that the greatest value is generated with the fusion of man and machine. Since then, John has lived in 7 states and managed plants in Germany and India. He has held positions in Engineering, Research and Development, Plant Management and Operations.

John is looking forward to his new role, “I am very excited about this opportunity to join Remcon – great people, super products, a solid business, and a genuine desire to build for the future. That’s a rare commodity today.”

Please join us in welcoming John to our team. We are confident that John’s extensive knowledge, skills, and experience will have a positive impact on Remcon operations and overall performance.  We are looking forward to his contributions in driving the company forward.
