The Society of Plastics Engineers is providing a platform at Antec 2024 to honor one of its most influential members, Glenn Beall.
Beall, who joined SPE in 1960, has been an engineer, inventor, consultant, educator, editor, author and industry activist and "stamped an indelible legacy on the growth of plastics and SPE," the group said.
A symposium to honor Beall during Antec, March 4-7, 2024, in St. Louis, will include a keynote presentation from Beall along with speakers focused on his expertise in rotational molding, injection molding, design, additive manufacturing and thermoforming.
Beall's career began in 1958 with Abbott Laboratories where he helped the medical market transition to safer disposable devices. He was named to the Plastics Hall of Fame in 1997 and now at age 90 owns Beall Plastics Ltd., a consulting firm in Libertyville, Ill.
