AKRON (April 13) — Myers Industries Inc. has named Mohsen Eskandar managing director of the firm's Lawn and Garden segment and chairman of ITML Horticultural Products Inc., a Brantford, Ontario-based horticultural container company in the segment.
He replaces Mike Lefroy, who left to pursue other opportunities, the firm said.
Eskandar previously spent 14 years in management with Allibert-Buckhorn, a European manufacturer of material handling containers that is part of the firm's former European Material Handling segment, which Myers Industries recently sold.
Eskandar has a broad knowledge of plastics manufacturing processes "and a deep understanding of the Canadian and European marketplaces," President and CEO John C. Orr said.
The Lawn and Garden segment is comprised of a diverse portfolio of companies, or brands, and last year had sales of about $160 million.
