Milacron Inc. has hired Brian Bishop as vice president of marketing for global plastics machinery, just a month after he left rival Demag Plastics Group as president of U.S. operations.
DPG has stopped assembling injection molding machines at its plant in Strongsville, Ohio, formerly known as Van Dorn Plastic Machinery Co.
At Cincinnati-based Milacron, Bishop will guide marketing and sales promotions. Milacron announced his hiring Nov. 5. Bishop's last day at DPG was Oct. 11.
Bishop has 22 years of experience in plastics machinery, including stints at HPM in Mount Gilead, Ohio, and Engel North America in York, Pa. He joined DPG in 2003.
