Denise Bennett Selected for New Position in Macon Missouri


Denise Bennett, ten year veteran of the recycled rubber industry, was recently named as the Regional Manager of Sales and Distribution for Welch Products in Macon Missouri.


"Denise brings valuable market knowledge and experience to this position", stated Bruce Boland, CEO of Welch Products.  "We like to reward individuals who work hard in contributing to our success and Denise has been a consistent performer for us over the years.  Her positive attitude and attention to customer needs has created the necessary momentum for our safety surfacing division in both Iowa and Missouri." 


Ms. Bennett has seen many innovations in the rubber products business in her ten years with Welch Products, especially with regards to playground safety.  "In the early days, shredded rubber was thought to be a good replacement for wood chips and pea-gravel in playgrounds, but eventually playground operators realized that shredded rubber had the same undesirable characteristics as other loose fill materials",  Denise recalls.  


Denise continues, "Seven years ago Welch developed its patented process for manufacturing playgrounds safety tiles.  After several months of testing, we launched the DuroMat Extended Life™ playground safety surfacing to schools, childcare centers and community parks throughout the Midwest, since then, we've really changed the way administrators think about playground safety."


Denise has attended the National Playground Safety Institute where, through training and testing, she became a Certified Playground Safety Inspector and, most recently, National Playground Safety School at the University of Northern Iowa, provided by the National Program for Playground Safety (NPPS) where she earned the S.A.F.E. playground certification. 


Boland concludes, "We look forward to Denise spearheading our Welch and NSSI marketing initiatives in Missouri while continuing to execute our growth plans."
