• Custom Plastics, Inc. hires new a manufacturers’ representative


    Elk Grove Village, IL-12/7/2018-Custom Plastics, Inc. hired Patrick Waldschmidt as a new
    Manufacturers Representative.

    Waldschmidt brings with him over 30 years of experience in the plastics industry. A majority of
    his early career was spent working with Saint-Gobain, the multinational construction and plastics
    material manufacturer. In 1995, he began his own firm, Precision Products, LLC.

    “I decided to contract with Custom Plastics for a number of reasons: their track record in the
    plastics industry, their breadth of products and their ability to produce material that most
    companies would shy away from. Add to the fact that Custom is located in the Chicagoland area
    and, with my Midwest-based customers, it seemed like a ‘win-win,’" says Waldschmidt.

    Aside from his work with Custom Plastics, Waldschmidt has experience in rotational molding,
    vacuum forming, conversion and manufacturing of films and tapes, and industrial hardware

    “When we first spoke, we discussed our visions of business growth and what opportunities lie
    ahead of us. I found Patrick to be very driven and I quickly knew that he would be a good fit for
    Custom. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with him,” says Peter Tisbo,
    President of Custom Plastics, “We’re very excited about 2019.”

    “Since working with Pete and Ed (Poelsterl, extrusion engineering manager at Custom Plastics),
    I've become more convinced that I chose the right path,” says Waldschmidt.

    As an outside sales representative, Waldschmidt’s firm is based in the Greater St. Louis area and
    serves the Midwest region. He can be reached at his office 314-966-3927 or
    mobile 314-570-3510 or by email at pwppinc@swbell.net.
