Comments:

Worked in the fiber glass industry for 40 years. Starting with Owens-Corning Fiberglas, followed by Advanced Glassfiber Yarns, then AGY, and finally as a consultant (mkharrop LLC).

Retired, living in Powell OH with three daughters and nine grandchildren in the area.

Update, after 8 years of retirement I accepted an offer to work on a project with a number of old friends from the fiber glass industry. Our client is a company in China. Initial development work is taking place here in Ohio. Next step will be to take it to Shanghai for installation and scale-up. Made one trip to Shanghai so far, more to come. Shanghai has sure changed since I was there years ago. It is tough going back to work at 69, but I am one of the younger engineers working on this project.

Update, finished first project in China, now working on a second project. This time in Chongqing. Have made three visits so far but now waiting for the corona virus to come to an end before more visits can be made. Lots of work to still be done.
