Hernon Manufacturing Welcomes New Electronic Engineer

Hernon Manufacturing, the innovator in adhesives, sealants and dispensing equipment, is pleased to announced its newest team member, Emily Rivera as a Controls Specialist in the company's Equipment Department.

"Emily has a strong background in both electrical engineering and instrumentation which will help accelerate the development of new dispensing equipment for our customers," said Harry Arnon, President of Hernon Manufacturing. "With multiple equipment manufacturing projects already on the books for this year, and the addition of several new employees, including Emily, we anticipate steady growth and maximum production levels for the remainder of the year and the following year."
As a graduate from the University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelors degree in Electronic Engineering and a minor in Instrumentation in 2007, Ms. Rivera began work at Abbott Bio-technologies as an Automation Specialist. She transferred to Vision Electronics in 2010 working as a Quality Controls Manager. In March of 2012, Ms. Rivera joined Hernon Manufacturing.

"As our equipment division continues to grow, Emily is a welcome addition," said Edgardo Rodriguez, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hernon Manufacturing. "Our company outperforms the competition because of the talented staff members we have employed which allows us to provide single source responsibility -- we engineer the products and equipment and stand behind their design."

In 1978, Hernon Manufacturing was founded in the basement of the home of brothers Harry and Josef Arnon in Queens, NY. Later that same year, the company moved to a larger facility in Long Island City, NY before relocated to an even larger building in Brooklyn. In 1990, the pair relocated to a newly constructed headquarters in Sanford, Florida. The company continues to grow and has projected the hiring of 5 to 10 additional employees in 2012 as well as expand into a 67,000 square-foot plant by year end 2013. With the addition of the new staff, building expansion as well as adding additional manufacturing equipment, the company expects to triple its production capacity.
