Journey from contract manufacturer to owner

06.26.14 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Lincoln Electric, 22801 St. Clair Avenue, Euclid OH 44117

Please join us on Thursday, June 26 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at Lincoln Electric for a free event offering insights into how three Northeast Ohio manufacturers made the change from contract manufacturer to product owner. The Greater Cleveland Partnership is co-hosting the session with MAGNET.

Many contract manufacturers have the potential to produce their own products but don’t know where to start. The event will feature presentations from manufacturers, who have taken the steps and are reaping the benefits from being product owners.


  • Asad Khan, chief technology officer, Kent Displays, a GCP-member company
  • Chris Carroll, president, Flavorseal
  • Larry Jutte (former SVP Honda North America), president and chief operating officer, Ernie Green Industries, Inc.

The event will conclude with an optional tour of Lincoln Electric’s plant.
