Plaskolite Names Ryan Schroeder President and CEO


Columbus, Ohio-based Plaskolite LLC, a manufacturer of continuously processed acrylic sheet products, announces that Ryan Schroeder has been named president and CEO. Schroeder, a seasoned executive with a proven track record of leading manufacturing companies to sustained long-term growth, succeeds Mitchell Grindley, a 37-year veteran of Plaskolite and the company’s CEO since 2015.

The company says Grindley will continue an active role with Plaskolite’s Board of Directors as executive chairman and will work closely with Schroeder during the transition.

Schroeder brings a track record for growing businesses both organically and through acquisition, most recently at IMI Precision Engineering, where he spent four years as president of the Americas, leading approximately 2,200 employees across 17 facilities. Prior to that, Schroeder spent 12 years with Parker Hannifin in a variety of roles, including general manager of global valves, plant manager and supply chain manager of the company’s Mobile Cylinders division.

“Plaskolite’s reputation speaks for itself, and I admire its leadership team, business practices, and dedication to customer service and innovation,” Schroeder says. “Plaskolite’s strong culture, with more than 60 years as a family-led business, has fostered a deep focus on being a valued supplier and partner to their customers. I am excited to join such an outstanding company and to work with Mitch and his team to build on this tremendous foundation.”
