One of Manchester’s manufacturing plants is operating under a new name after being sold this year.
Exide Technologies is now known as Stryten Manufacturing. CEO Tim Vargo explains.
Stryten is simply the company by name that took over the assets of Exide, with batteries still the product being manufactured at the Manchester plant.
They’ve got a seven-day-a-week operation right now and Vargo says business is very strong, with huge demand for their product. Around three hundred people are employed at the Manchester plant and all former Exide employees have stayed on with the company, with more offered jobs during a hiring event last weekend.
And he says being involved in the community is important to the Stryten company too.
And Stryten is looking to hire at least twenty more workers at their Manchester plant as production operators, material handlers and maintenance technicians. For more information and to apply, visit stryten.com.
