Thermoset industry veteran Len Nunnery has joined Plastics Engineering Co. (Plenco), a materials firm in Sheboygan, Wis.
Nunnery is now Plenco's director of marketing, sales and technical service, company officials said in a news release. In that role, he's responsible for leading Plenco's commercial and technical service organizations while driving new growth initiatives, they added.
Nunnery "brings a unique depth of knowledge and experience in the development, production and commercialization of customized thermosets, thermoplastics and elastomeric products," according to the release.
With more than 20 years of thermoset experience, Nunnery's background includes leadership positions at Bulk Molding Compounds, which was sold to Citadel Plastics and then acquired by A. Schulman. He most recently served as vice president of sales and marketing for Minnesota Rubber & Plastics.
In the Society of Plastics Engineers, Nunnery served three times as chair of its thermoset division. He also helped raise more than $1 million to support SPE activities. Nunnery holds a degree from Boston College.
Plenco President and CEO Mike Brotz said that Nunnery "brings Plenco a proven history of successful sales and marketing leadership in our industry, along with a wealth of technical thermoset experience."
Plenco makes compounds and molding materials based on phenolics, thermoset polyester, melamine and similar materials for several markets including automotive, electrical insulation and lighting. The firm was founded in Chicago in 1934 and moved to Sheboygan later that year.
