Arnold will remain on MFG Chemical’s Board of Directors, continuing to serve as a highly valued resource for the company. He will also continue on the Board of Governors at SOCMA, the chemical industry’s trade association.
Turgeon experience includes positions with Ciba, FMC, BetzDearborn, Great Lakes Chemical, Nalco and Chemtura Corporation.
“I’m honored to assume the leadership of this great company and I look forward to working closely with this outstanding MFG team to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations," he said. "I thank Keith Arnold for his leadership and many important contributions, including the acquisition of our 27-acre Pasadena, Texas plant to better serve the oil and gas industry.
"Keith has also instilled a culture of plant safety and customer confidentiality. He spearheaded the upgrading of all four of MFG Chemical’s plants, obtaining the recertification of ISO 9001: 2015 and the achievement of the 'Excellence Tier' and numerous safety and plant improvement awards from SOCMA," Turgeon added.
Said Arnold: “Working with so many wonderful customers and then leading MFG Chemical as its CEO has been the pleasure and honor of a lifetime. I’m going to enjoy more of a consultative role going forward as a Board Director and will continue my close friendships and associations within the chemical industry, as well as my work for the SOCMA Board of Governors. MFG Chemical’s customers and the MFG team could not be in more competent hands than with Paul Turgeon at the helm.”
