AMELIA, OHIO-Blown film equipment maker Black Clawson Sano Inc., in the latest move in its management shakeup, has gone outside the company to hire its new president. Black Clawson Sano announced Oct. 4 that Jan Ivey is the new president and general manager of the Amelia company, a unit of New York-based Black Clawson Co. Ivey has 34 years of experience in blown and cast film, and flexible packaging. His most recent post was director of engineering and process development at James River Corp.
James River's Packaging Business, based in Milford, Ohio, stands as the eighth-largest film and sheet manufacturer in Plastics News' latest ranking, with $420 million in 1995 sales. The unit was recently acquired by Atlanta-based Printpack Inc.
Several Black Clawson company officials have resigned. The former president, Cary Landegger, was removed from that post and put in charge of all Black Clawson joint ventures and licensing agreements. He is the son of Carl C. Landegger, who owns Black Clawson.
Cary Landegger was replaced on an interim basis by Jim Simcox, retired general manager and president of Black Clawson Converting Machinery Corp. based in Fulton, N.Y.
