GERMANTOWN, OH—The Dupps Company announced June 21 that Frank Dupps Jr. has been appointed President of the company, and assumes his new duties on July 1.
He succeeds John A. Dupps, who becomes the company's bhairman of the Board, also on July 1.
John A. Dupps has served as President since 1982. Frank Dupps Jr., who leaves the post of director of international sales, joined the company in 1991.
During his tenure, Dupps has gained experience in every aspect of the firm's business, including engineering, manufacturing, service, administrative operations, marketing and sales.
In his most recent role, he was responsible for introducing The Dupps Company into new global markets, including major positions in Latin America, that now account for a significant and growing portion of Dupps’ annual sales. As president, Dupps looks forward to ushering the company into new markets, including process applications that would benefit directly from Dupps' engineering and manufacturing expertise, as well as even more comprehensive product and service offerings to traditional Dupps market segments.
Dupps is careful to put ambitious company growth into perspective, noting that "As we pursue the business objectives that will keep us on a successful path well into the future, we will do so with the same philosophy—putting the customer first, offering the best value possible, and cultivating opportunities and incentives for our family of employees—that we've stood for since the company was founded 75 years ago."
