Doran Manufacturing, a manufacturer of tire pressure monitoring systems for truck fleets and off-road equipment, recently celebrated their 70th anniversary with a ribbon cutting to open their new facility.
Dignitaries on hand included the mayor and city officials from the City of Blue Ash and trusted partners and service providers who were instrumental in the firms move. In addition to their 7th decade in business, Doran is celebrating new ownership, as the company was recently purchased by a group of current Doran executive leaders including longtime President Jim Samocki, Lee Demis, Vice President of Business Development, and Dave Robinson, Controller.
“We’re thrilled with the new facilities,” said Samocki, on the new 10,000-square-foot facility in suburban Cincinnati. “Blue Ash is transportation-friendly and offers many amenities that we didn’t have previously, which are great for our current and future team members. Everyone from the city has been amazing.”
Starting with a clean slate in terms of plant layout allowed the Doran team to design the flex-space facility in an efficient manner for manufacturing, shipping and service, with ample office space for current employees and room for growth.
“Whether in a fleet of over-the-road trucks and trailers, agricultural tractors and equipment, or off-road machinery for mining and heavy construction, our goal is to enhance safety and reduce costs across the fleet” Samocki said.
Doran Manufacturing develops innovative technology to keep their customers’ equipment in service while improving safety and reducing costs. They provide a full lineup of tire pressure monitoring systems for over-the-road vehicles, agricultural equipment, off-road equipment, school buses, first responders, and more, as well as producing exterior light monitors and Sleeping Child Monitors for school transportation usage.
