New Spartech-er helping promote thermoformable sheet

Article-New Spartech-er helping promote thermoformable sheet

Sheet extruder Spartech Corp. (St. Louis, MO) has named a new market development manager, as Bryan Lindquist joins the marketing and technology team at the processor. His charge: provide onsite support to OEMs and thermoformers by specifying appropriate materials to meet their performance requirements.

Lindquist is a 26-year veteran of the thermoformed plastics industry, having worked most recently as a market development manager for Solvay Engineered Polymers (Alpharetta, GA) and with the firm after LyondellBasell Advanced Polyolefins purchased it. His primary focus there was in market development of the sheet extrusion/thermoforming business for the agriculture, construction, and motorized sporting goods markets.

Lindquist will be based in Minneapolis and will support the central region of the United States and Canada.

Spartech last year introduced new grades of low-sag thermoformable thermoplastic olefin (TPO) sheet and, as reported here earlier this week, recently developed a range of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) films, dubbed EnviroSeal, which it predicts could grab some market share from clear, rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC) packaging. Key to the new range is that these PET films can be Radio Frequency (RF) welded and heat-sealed to film or cards. [email protected]
