Manufacturers and Rep. Kirk Schuring gathered this week to honor Bill Belden, Jr., retiring chairman and CEO of The Belden Brick Company, Canton. Rep. Schuring presented Bill with a proclamation of recognition on behalf of the Ohio House of Representatives. Bill has lead the Belden Brick Co. since 1983 as president and later chairman and CEO.  He is well known in the Canton area and beyond for his involvement in civic and charitable works.  He served as a director of the OMA board since 1999. Godspeed, Bill, thank you for your generous service to the community of Ohio manufacturers.  10/25/2016
