Scenic Solutions’ new Plant Operations Manager, Kyle Wichman.

Dayton, Ohio, May 8, 2022 – Scenic Solutions is pleased to welcome Kyle Wichman as Plant Operations Manager. This is a new position for the company. Wichman’s first day at Scenic Solutions will be Monday, May 8.

“We’re extremely excited that Kyle has joined Scenic Solutions,” said Chad Engleman, General Manager. Engleman worked previously with Wichman at River City Scenic in Cincinnati where Wichman climbed the ladder from Fabricator to Shop Forman and Lead Installer. Engleman continued, “He brings 25 years of experience in scenery construction, high-end display fabrication, logistics, and shop floor management to our team.”

As Plant Operations Manager, Wichman will be responsible for leading the day-to-day operations of the fabrication department.
