Cincinnati-based Doran Manufacturing recently celebrated being in business for 55 years, with an internal celebration with employees.

"With so many companies struggling to survive and thrive, we chose to conduct an extensive review of our business," said Jim Samocki, general manager. "As with every company, we have been faced with a number of challenges to our business, but our team members have been integral to keeping the company on course."

Doran Manufacturing continues to produce and assemble terminals and terminal boards for small electric motors in the original factory that was established in 1954. In addition, the company has been designing, assembling and supplying transportation safety products for school buses, RVs and commercial trucks for more than 35 years. Product categories include tire pressure monitoring systems for RVs, truck fleets and motorcycles; monitors for LED/incandescent lights and Sleeping Child Check monitors for school buses.

"We are looking forward to providing new solutions to our customers' problems and expediting the next growth phase for our business," said Samocki.
