Farrel Pomini is a 175 year old company that has been through multiple iterations of their manufacturing journey - and still survives! In their latest iteration, they are a leader in research, design and manufacture of compounding systems for the polymer processing industry.
In this episode, Ari talks to Paul Lloyd, President of Farrel Pomini, about the history of the company and Paul's role for the past 30+ years. They dive into the sustainability of the plastics industry and the innovation that must continue in order to make it a viable solution for the planet in addition to the economy.
Throughout the episode, we hear Paul's reflections on his path into manufacturing and see how that is mirrored by their new and very successful Engineering Development Program.
Ari and Paul cover both the past and future all in one episode!
