Senior Extrusion Technician

Jon started his career in the plastics industry with EPL in 1983, with an interlude in the New Zealand Navy. His main focus has been the testing of new tooling setups and equipment to a stage where they can go into production. The process includes testing and analysing raw materials, keeping abreast of new technology in the plastics industry, training staff in new developments, and liaison with the tool-room regarding design and tooling of new profiles. The father of four children, he finds time to play around with hot rods, motorcycles and to enjoy the odd round of golf.
