Chief among them are the company’s nimble reaction time to trends and its product development team.
Merritt, an upstate South Carolina native, said he has known about Orian for a while and liked what he saw once he got a closer look at operations.
“What attracted me were the people, the place and the opportunity, manufacturing and the growth opportunities in the industry,” he said.
Since joining, Merritt said he’s been impressed with the company culture and the way everybody adapts to whatever’s placed in front of them. That nimbleness, he said, will serve the company well moving forward.
“Product development is our No. 1 initiative and I’ll unashamedly say we have the best in the market. Obviously we want to continue on our product development path,” Merritt said. “We have new prototype samples that are in our lab at the moment that will blow the lid off the industry. I cannot wait until it’s ready to show.”
