A veteran business and sales executive, Mike Waryas currently serves as President of Esmet, Inc., a leading manufacturing firm based in Canton, Ohio, that traces its roots back to 1933. He joined the company as a sales manager in 1998, after having held a number of successful sales and management positions in a range of industries, including industrial products, insurance, and food service. Today, after nearly 15 years with Esmet, Mike Waryas heads this leader in wire rope terminations, swivels, vehicle equipment, and safety products. Under Mike Waryas’ management, Esmet maintains two product lines. The Electroline division of Esmet produces swivels and custom-made end fittings for synthetic and wire rope. The fittings, which include such items as clevis, eyes, studs, turnbuckles, and hooks, are used almost anywhere that requires wire or synthetic rope. As such, Electroline products can be found on U.S. military ships, in industrial lifting applications, in architectural railings, and in ballparks, zoos, and outdoor parking lots throughout the United States.The second division, Tufloc, manufactures security products for military personnel and law enforcement agencies. During Mike Waryas’ tenure, Tufloc has devoted significant resources to research and development to maintain the quality and innovation of its products at affordable prices. Products include a wide range of gun racks for vehicles and buildings, as well as lockers and storage boxes. Tufloc also produces a line of high-security locks. Because of his extensive sales and marketing background, Mike Waryas understands the need to maintain a competitive edge in every area of the company. To do so, he has focused the company on hiring and retaining highly skilled workers, including machinists, welders, programmers, and assembly personnel. In addition, Esmet invests in state-of-the-art equipment and ongoing training and benefits programs for its staff.
