The Composites Group Strengthens Senior Management

Hector Diaz-Stringel has been promoted to vice president of manufacturing operations, and Dwight Morgan recently joined the company as vice president of sales and marketing. In addition, company veteran Marc Imbrogno was promoted to the newly created position of corporate director, market/product development.

“Realigning the management structure was essential to realizing the potential of the three business units we’ve assembled to form The Composites Group,” said Terry Morgan. The Composites Group was created in 2010 through the combination of Premix Inc., Hadlock Plastics and Quantum Composites. “We now can provide a wide range of composites solutions, from a superior portfolio of compounds to a breadth of molding technologies and complemented by integrated secondary and fi nishing capabilities,” Morgan added.

A native of Mexico, Diaz-Stringel has spent most of his career in the chemicals industry, serving in a progression of engineering, sales and marketing, and operational roles that led to his appointment as president and general manager of Rhein Chemie Corporation, a subsidiary of Lanxess Corporation, Pittsburgh, Pa. He left Rhein Chemie in 2011 to become vice president of sales and marketing for Chemical Associates, Inc., Copley, Ohio. He joined The Composites Group as corporate director of manufacturing operations in 2012. Diaz-Stringel holds a degree in chemical engineering and management from the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Monterrey, Mexico, and a master’s degree in business administration from Kent State University, Ohio.

Dwight Morgan began his career in plastics with M. A. Hanna Company, a predecessor to PolyOne Corporation, where he held a succession of corporate development and general management roles. In 1998, he left Hanna to form Accel Color Corporation, a producer of custom formulated color and additive systems that grew to four facilities and $20 million in annual revenue. When Accel Color was sold to Techmer PM LLC in 2008, Morgan continued to run the company as a wholly owned subsidiary and a member of Techmer’s senior management team. Morgan holds a bachelor’s degree from Kent State University’s School of Journalism, Kent, Ohio, and a juris doctorate degree from the University of Akron School of Law in Ohio, where he is a member of the bar.

Imbrogno has been employed with Premix for more than 14 years, during which time he has held various commercial positions, including account management, market management, sales management and business development. He began his career as a research & development chemist at Glastic Corporation. He subsequently joined chemical giant BASF, where he held polymer product development and business development positions. He holds a bachelor of science degree in Chemistry from the University of Akron, Ohio. In this new position, Imbrogno will help align the company’s research and development efforts with market opportunities.
