Washington Penn Plastic
Director of Technology - Europe
Adam is a 32-year veteran of the polypropylene business. After earning his Ph.D in Chemical Engineering at Princeton University, he started his career with Himont (now Lyondell Basell) in 1988, in the polypropylene business unit, first in R&D, then Business Management, and finally in Manufacturing. After 10 years polymerizing PP, he moved downstream to the technical custom compounder, Washington Penn Plastic Company, where he spent the next twelve years heading up their technology efforts in the United States, before moving to Europe to take over operations there in 2011. As his expat Managing Director assignment expired, he chose to localize in Europe, where he has led the technical group at the Slovakian plant for the past 5 years.
