Dear Colleagues and Plastic Injection Molding/Mold Manufacturing Industry Professionals,
This letter is to announce that I have completed my 16 month stint in full time work as Director of Tooling/Engineering for Matrix IV, Inc.in Woodstock, IL, a plastic injection molding company not involved in internal mold manufacturing. I am presently seeking a full time position in the plastic injection molding field, preferably in mold manufacturing. I would also consider consulting work as described in the web-site www.lengrahamconsulting.com.
Berry Plastics sold the Mold Manufacturing unit I led in Buffalo Grove, IL from November, 2011, where I had initiated the beginnings of the Mega-Cell, to Flextronics Corp on October 31, 2014. Berry, who had purchased the unit from Rexam, was informed that they would not be transferring my employment to Flextronics when the transfer was complete. My position at Matrix IV, Inc. began the following Monday on November 3, 2014 and continued until February 26 of this year. Len Graham Consulting has been dissolved as a business as of May, 2012 and it had ceased functioning as a business until now.
Many of you are aware of and supported the Super Cell project I initiated, but was never able to complete in Arizona. You may also be aware that Rexam had initiated cell 1 of 5 cells that was to have eventually become the Mega-Cell had it been completed. That venture had been the subject of many industry articles published between 2012 and 2014. I am no longer affiliated with that project. My focus will now be on working to join a progressive mold manufacturing organization that could use my help with automation implementation/improvement and/or a mold manufacturing assistance of leadership role.
More information on my past work within our industry can be accessed by clicking on the "About Len Graham" button below, or by entering "Len Graham Mold Manufacturing" into Google.
My work in mold manufacturing has ranged from aiding/leading the development and implementation of standards and procedures which facilitate implementing automation/selecting appropriate infrastructure to aid in sales, mold design, as well as aiding/leading management efforts.
Thank you all for past and future support for my efforts.
I look forward to working with a progressive mold manufacturing company in the very near future. Perhaps that company will be yours.
