The Brilex Group of Companies recently announced the hiring of former Nucor executive Doyle Hopper as Chief Executive Officer of Brilex Industries, Inc., Brilex Technical Solutions, LLC and Taylor-Winfield Technologies, Inc. As their CEO, Hopper will leverage nearly 30 years of steel industry and manufacturing expertise to drive strategic growth and commercial excellence across the Group's companies.
