Harry Smith

President and CEO

“It’s a privilege to be part of the Automation Plastics community and to serve our customers and our employees on a daily basis. I look forward to the never-ending process of becoming a better version of who we are.”

A graduate of RPI with a Masters’ Degree in Management and Industrial Systems Engineering, Harry spent the first half of his career in various manufacturing and general management assignments with Chemcut, Figgie International, and Dirt Devil. He joined Automation Plastics in 1994 as General Manager and purchased the company from Henry DeRocher in 1999.

He and his wife Katie spend time, when possible, with their 3 grown children, Perry, Karen, and McKenzie, and new grandchild, Caleb. Their faithful Wheaton Terrier and Rottweiler are always home to provide comic relief. And they enjoy frequent involvement in a variety of activities at the Parish of St. Rita in Solon, along with an occasional ride on their motorcycle.
