As the general manager of Alexandria Industries’ Indianapolis, Ind., facility, Ben Diedrich is responsible for managing facility and equipment operations and overseeing employee well-being and safety. Diedrich joined Alexandria Industries more than 20 years ago. Most recently, he served as the Indianapolis plant manager and before then, he was extrusion press manager at our Alexandria, Minn., location.
Diedrich moved from Alexandria to Indianapolis to manage our press equipment upgrade and mentor facility employees.

Ben, his wife Heather, and daughter Danika, regularly volunteer at local food pantries and other charities such as the Arthritis Foundation. He enjoys spending time with family and friends, hosting backyard BBQ’s, friendly game-night competitions, and hunting and fishing when he is back in Minnesota. Ben believes it is important to help others by doing what you can when you are able; making sure we are supporting each other, our families and our community.
