Toray Plastics (America), Inc., headquartered in North Kingston, RI, and manufacturer of precision-performance polyester and polypropylene films, has named Scott Van Winter as vice-president and general manager of the Lumirror Polyester Film Division as of June 28.
The Lumirror Division is responsible for the research, development, and manufacture of a wide range of value-added polyester films for packaging and industrial end users. Among the diverse advanced film technology applications are stand-up pouches and lidding on the packaging side, and solar windows, graphics, electronics, durable-goods and in-mold labels, and wire and cable insulation, on the industrial side.
“Scott’s business acumen, vision, commitment, and drive have enabled Toray Plastics (America) to become the nation’s leading supplier of polyester film for packaging and industrial applications,” says Rick Schloesser, chief executive officer and president, for the U.S. arm of Toray. “Under his wise and enthusiastic direction the division’s sales, marketing, and manufacturing teams have performed exceptionally. We are grateful for his leadership and congratulate him on a well-deserved promotion.”
Having joined Toray in 2004, Van Winter was most recently the director and general manager of the Lumirror Division when the company launched its Localization Program, a global growth strategy that called for locally based management.
