PTI Names Thierry Fabozzi Managing Director of European Business Unit

January 9, 2012
Thierry Fabozzi has been named managing director of Plastic Technologies Inc. Europe (PTI-E), Yverdon, Switzerland, by Dr. Tom Brady, founder and chairman of Plastic Technologies Inc. (PTI).

PTI has a long-standing global reputation as a leader in for package development and design, rapid prototyping, and material evaluation engineering for plastic packaging.

Thierry comes to PTI-E with a 25-year track record of packaging technology and business development achievements. Most recently, he was the business stream packaging leader and rigid packaging specialist for Nestlé’s Nestec Product Technology Center Orbe, Vevey, Switzerland. 

Before that, he spent seven years in technical and business development positions with Milacron Plastic Technology Group. This included the Ferromatik injection molding machine operation in Germany, as well as the Uniloy blow molding business unit in Michigan. His experience also includes eight years as a technical and research and development manager with Tetra Pak Plastics Inc., Geneva, Switzerland.

“Thierry’s multidiscipline experience in the packaging sector makes him uniquely qualified to lead PTI’s European operation,” said Brady.  “Having spearheaded projects for brand owners, machinery manufacturers and material suppliers his entire career, he is ideally suited to take our global business to the next level.”

In recent years, PTI’s capabilities have expanded globally into other materials, processes and non-packaging applications. New material options include biopolymers (such as polylactic acid or PLA), as well as traditional resins such as polypropylene, which are increasingly being used in high performance applications. PTI also has expanded its processing capabilities beyond injection and stretch blow molding into sheet extrusion, thermoforming and extrusion blow molding.

“I believe my background is well suited to helping clients meet their packaging objectives. I look forward to working directly with the European client base and helping PTI-Europe grow to the next level,” Fabozzi said.
