About adam

I've Been in Plastics for 10 years after graduating with a degree in Plastics from Ferris State University. Grew with a company that in my time there went from 7 million in sales to 55 million. I have complete knowledge of Injection Molding Operations from concept to production.

I'm looking to find a co-founder for a venture into my own Injection Molding company that will operate "lights out" and utilizing proprietary process design that can provide better quality at a lower cost than competitors.
