A concentration of the right engineering talent has spawned two film extrusion technology companies in the Toronto area.
Cyber Plastics Machinery Inc. has started up in Brampton, Ontario, to upgrade and retrofit blown film systems. The company is headed by Dawn Krycki-De Santis, daughter of Robert Krycki, the founder of Future Design Inc., a business that was bought by Gloucester Engineering Co. Inc. in 2012.
Meanwhile, former Macro Engineering & Technology Inc. employees have established Tronoplast Technologies Inc., a firm that will be based in the Brampton-Mississauga area when the principals close on deal to lease space.

Krycki-De Santis gained film equipment experience working in sales, marketing and administration in the 15 years she worked alongside her father at Future Design.
“We've started refurbishing blown film lines and are developing new air ring technology,” Krycki-De Santis said in a phone interview. “We're also starting research and development on new equipment.”
