MOGADORE, Ohio—Portage Precision Polymers Inc. has been selected to receive a 2014 Smart 50 award by Smart Business Magazine.
The Smart 50 recognizes the top 50 executives of the 50 smartest companies in the Ohio region for their ability to build and lead successful organizations effectively.
“I am extremely pleased and honored to be part of the Smart 50 Award,” said Douglas N. Hartley, president and CEO of the Mogadore-based custom rubber and silicone mixing company. “We have come a long way in the 12 years we have been in business, and we would not have been able to get to the point we are at today without not only the associates who work here, but those who were a big part of our beginnings.”
Portage Precision supplies mixed rubber and silicone compounds to a variety of industries, including those in the construction, agriculture, railroad, oil and gas, automotive and piping industries throughout North America.
The company's Ravenna, Ohio, rubber and elastomeric compounding manufacturing operation has evolved, expanded and grown steadily since it opened in 2002. Portage Precision also recently opened a new silicone custom mixing facility in Mogadore.
