 How did plastics become your career?

I was in college at the University of Evansville working on a degree in mechanical engineering, and I took a co-op job with an injection molder. I’ve been in the business ever since. Injection molding was – and still is – a huge industry in the Evansville area. I knew if I got my foot in the door, I’d have 10 companies that I could pick from over the course of my career. Of course, now there are four injection molders remaining in Evansville, and I’ve worked for two of them!

Describe Infinity Molding & Assembly.

Infinity Molding & Assembly is a molder that specializes in making difficult parts out of engineering resins. Infinity has an ISO class 7 cleanroom, and we make the parts that other people either don’t want to create and don’t have the ability to manufacture. These parts are very complicated – the average tool here doesn’t just open and close, it opens and slides in multiple directions. Infinity also runs oil-heated molds, which aren’t very common. We produce approximately 100 million pieces per year, with product sizes that range from four pellets to the size of your hand.

In what areas are you willing to share your experiences with other processors?

I’m prepared to speak with anyone about employment testing. At Infinity, we perform both random drug testing and pre-employment screenings, and I’d say we’re probably further along in our HR policies than most companies. Our HR manager publishes an employee handbook every year that’s 43 pages long – we spend a lot of time and effort in perfecting our policies and procedures. I also have significant experience in product design.
