April 27, 2017 – Grandview, MO – PRIER Products is proud to announce the appointment of two new associates, Chris Campbell, Product Quality Engineer, and Ben Byler, Distribution Manager.

Hired to be the liaison between Research & Development and Manufacturing to make sure design intent is instilled in our production facility, Chris Campbell has already jumped into several new projects, which is the kind of variety in a job that helped him decide to work at PRIER over other opportunities.

“This position is new to PRIER, so we needed someone with experience in product design, quality management and process improvement.  Chris brings us all three of these skills in one package.  We are glad to have him aboard!” said Scott Brady, Engineering Manager at PRIER.  

Chris grew up in St. Louis and was previously working in Omaha, so coming to Kansas City has brought him closer to his family.  He is looking forward to getting back into the gym and taking on some small home improvement projects.

Our new Distribution Manager, Ben Byler, will become the glue between manufacturing and shipping that is necessary to maintain control over PRIER’s production from start to finish.

Ben received his training in the US Air Force overseas and has managed logistics for a health care IT company before starting with PRIER.  “We’re over the moon that we were able to track down Ben for this position. His experience and expertise in distribution have positioned him beautifully to take PRIER to the next level,” stated Brady Poskin, Plant Manager.

Originally from Raymore and now living in Lee’s Summit, MO, Ben and his wife, Leah, enjoy going on float trips, traveling the world, and spoiling their dog, Cora.
