“Quality has always been a point of emphasis here at Mills Products,” said Darrell Adcock, president of Mills Products, in a release announcing the hires. “It’s an integral part of both our engineering and production processes. We’re expecting that the attention and expertise these quality-focused team members bring to the table will help us improve our already impressive quality record.”
