By Design: Bemis Manufacturing Co.'s Kristin Charlton

January 6, 2010

In this week's episode of By Design, Bemis Manufacturing Co.'s Kristin Charlton shares with Plastics News Editor Robert Grace her belief that cowboys and farmers should get along (That's her analogy for promoting friendly interaction between designers and engineers two groups of professionals that tend to speak different languages, approach problem solving from differing perspectives, and frequently suffer from, shall we say, creative tension.). Charlton, manager of market and business development for the Sheyboygan Falls, Wis., injection molder and extruder, obviously has bought into the philosophy of CEO Peter Bemis, whose mantra is "to fulfill the dreams of industrial designers."
