Jim Duff

Vice President Manufacturing

 

My partners and I created ON2 Solutions in April of 2016. I took on the role of General Manager and in doing so, I provided direct operational leadership to our team on-site. We grew the company exponentially over the past 2 years and were able to reach new markets and applications. We attracted the attention of Bining Healthcare Inc. and on April 1, 2018 we joined their team. I have since accepted the role of the VP of Manufacturing for the group. Our entire Team is excited about the future of ON2 and we are committed to continuing the values we worked so hard to establish; to deliver high quality, high value mine refuge and gas generation systems and services. Our next goal is to expand these quality services and products into the Industrial Oxygen and Nitrogen arenas and quickly establish ourselves as leaders of Application Solutions.

Other Hats that I have worn prior to joining the ON2 Team: I started with Ontario Hydro many years ago and rose from an electrical operator to a transmission officer within the company. I had the honor and challenge of leading a team who created the Control Centre tools for Hydro One, which won numerous awards over the years. I left Hydro One to take on the exciting new opportunity of managing Algonquin Power’s first Wind Generating facility in Canada. Over the next 8 years I became the Director of Operations and lead 120 Operations and Engineering team members who operated and maintained 45 different Energy Generation Facilities in Hydro, Wind, Thermal, and Solar.

 

Skills and Education that I bring to the ON2 Team:

Bachelor’s Degree: Astrophysics

NERC Certified Electrical Operator

Six Sigma Lean Manufacturing Certification

Project Management Professional Certification

Certified First Aider and First Responder Certification

WHMIS, Confined Space Entry and Rescue, COR Safety Certification

 

An experience that “Took your breath (oxygen) away:  “The flight that my father took me on in a CF104 Starfighter. I was 9 and will NEVER forget the thrill of that flight! This experience inspired me to pursue my pilot license, which I achieved when I was 17 years old.”
