ASHLAND, Ohio – Randy Ridenour, President of Atlas Bolt & Screw Company LLC, has decided to retire at the end of 2016 after 32 years with the company.
Ridenour joined Atlas in 1984 as Central Region Branch Manager and held positions of increasing responsibility leading to his promotion to President in November 2009. “Throughout his career, Randy has made a significant positive impact not only on Atlas but also on numerous industry associations where he is highly respected for his service,” said Michael Hartley, President of the Marmon Construction Fasteners Group. Ridenour will continue to support Marmon as a consultant on various initiatives during 2017.
“To say that Randy will be missed would be an understatement,” Hartley said. “At the same time, he has built an excellent management team that will enable a seamless transition in leadership and continued exemplary service to Atlas customers.”
With Ridenour’s retirement, Scott Bowers, Atlas Business Unit Manager for Metal, and Don Bratcher, Business Unit Manager for Wood, will each have full autonomy to run their business and both will report directly to Hartley. “With their knowledge and experience, Scott and Don will provide solid leadership as Atlas builds on its strong reputation and market position,” Hartley said.
