WVMA President Rebecca McPhail said Buck’s chairmanship comes at a time when West Virginia’s manufacturing community is rallying to find innovative solutions to help the state address the COVID-19 pandemic. Buck’s leadership ensures the WVMA and its member companies will help to lead West Virginia’s economic recovery.

“Barbara Buck is a recognized leader in our state’s manufacturing community and an active member of the WVMA Board,” McPhail said. “As she takes her place in WVMA history as our first female board chairman, I know that her dedication to her Covestro team and the manufacturing industry translates into strong leadership for our association.”

Buck has more than 25 years of polyurethane engineering and manufacturing experience.

She began her career in 1993 as a plant engineer in the South Charleston plant. She held multiple engineering, project management and production management positions in the South Charleston plant and in the Corporate Technology Center. In 2011, Buck became the director of manufacturing of the South Charleston site, and then she became the plant manager in April 2017.
