Advances in Plastic Profile Extrusion + Wisdom Earned from a Long Career.

Please join us in welcoming Daniel Cykana on September 19, 2017 to the Milwaukee Society of Plastics Engineers technical program at the Sheraton in Brookfield.  Why?  Dan has been working in plastics extrusion for over 50 (fifty) years (!), including prosperous stints and Northland Plastics and Bemis Manufacturing, up to now as the owner of Extrusion Solutions, LLC.  Dan has kindly agreed to present two topics:  First he will share some personal stories that shaped his career, stories and observations to consider as we shape our careers and improve our respective employers’ ability to compete.  Second Dan will be presenting about advances in plastic profile extrusion to offer a glimpse into how much is changing.

Dan has worked in management and advanced engineering roles for most of his career and, since 2010, has been helping people improve plastics extrusion manufacturing through his own company, Extrusion Solutions, LLC.  This promises to be a great blend of personal anecdotes, career advice and technical information.
