“Prime has built a strong reputation for implementing well-engineered solutions for poultry processing for more than 20 years, and it’s our R&D and engineering departments in Columbus, Ohio, that are key to that,” said Larry Woodruff, Prime’s Vice President of Operations. “With these additions to our engineering group, we’re adding a wealth of industry experience and resources to the team that creates, evolves and updates a diverse product line that serves nearly all aspects of the poultry production process.”

Jeff is a veteran designer with 30-plus years experience in the design and engineering of industrial equipment. Geoff graduated from Ohio University in 2011 and is looking forward to working closely with Geno Gasbarro and developing new equipment to meet the needs of our industry.
