Wayne Etchells Appointed Metlon Corp. President

Cranston, RI – Wayne Etchells, has been appointed president of Cranston, RI-based Metlon Corporation, custom slitting and converting service provider, specializing in precision, narrow width slitting, authorized distributor of 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material, and metallic yarn manufacturer.  The announcement was made today by former president and treasurer, Frank Venner, who now serves as CEO and chairman. Etchells has held the position of executive vice president since 2004, replacing retiring Metlon Corporation veteran of 60 years, Joseph Resch.  Etchells joined the company in 1977.

“Working at Metlon for more than 30 years has given me a wealth of knowledge about three distinctly different, unrelated industries, but most importantly, extensive experience about how this company evolved, diversified and re-engineered to remain competitive since its founding in 1947,”comments Etchells.

“I continue to look forward to Metlon’s next chapters. Tapping the potential of social media is next on our list to tackle, especially since we have such a wide range of potential clients to serve, particularly in the areas of safety applications and ANSI compliance with our reflective material, and contract slitting of paper, films and foils used in R&D and product manufacturing.”
