Marlton, NJ (PRWEB) September 19, 2007
Neil Kozarsky, chief executive officer of T.H.E.M. (Technical Help in Engineering and Marketing), has announced that Kenneth W. Botterbrodt, a leading authority in packaging systems development and engineering, has been named the company's president. T.H.E.M. is a provider of innovative packaging solutions to global food, beverage and healthcare organizations. Botterbrodt has played a major role in the evolution of T.H.E.M. as a leading North American provider of flexible stick packaging solutions.
Botterbrodt joined T.H.E.M. in 2000 as senior vice president, leading the company's engineering, production and operational business units. Recognized as an innovator in packaging systems development and engineering, Botterbrodt's focus has been the "Americanization" of overseas equipment, such as Sanko stick packaging from Japan, now T.H.E.M.'s core business focus.
A pacesetter in the packaging systems arena, Botterbrodt holds U.S. patents for a diverse range of container and process control technologies. Having been involved in processing machinery and systems since 1979, he has extensive experience with corrugated box equipment, pharmaceutical processing, and machinery design and development. Botterbrodt's earlier career credentials also include the design and manufacture of semiconductor production equipment.
When Botterbrodt joined T.H.E.M. in 2000, the company was known primarily for providing innovative, integrated supply chain solutions to leading consumer products group organizations. T.H.E.M. is now a global leader in stick packaging technologies and related applications development. T.H.E.M. works closely with companies such as Power Packaging, an Exel Company, to help clients scale up their productions.
"Ken's significant contribution to the growth of T.H.E.M.'s revenues and capabilities cannot be overstated. His skills, strong work ethic and dedication to our customers have helped vault T.H.E.M. to the leadership position in the stick packaging industry," said Kozarsky. "He is the 'go to guy' for new, challenging packaging applications and is a true professional who solves problems and gets things done."
Botterbrodt predicts continued growth and a bright future for T.H.E.M. as he commits to continuing to apply the principles that have resulted in his past successes.
"T.H.E.M.'s 'can do' culture and fighting spirit is what attracted me to the company in the first place," explains Botterbrodt. "We do whatever it takes to meet our client's needs, and accomplish what many say can't be done. I'm grateful for the chance to serve as president of T.H.E.M., and look forward to the many opportunities the future holds."
When not immersed in packaging, Botterbrodt enjoys spending time with his other passion: radio communications. He holds a number of radio licenses, including General Class Radio Telephone and Extra Class Amateur Radio licenses. In 1995, he received the Atlantic Division Amateur of the Year award. He served as president of the South Jersey Radio Association, for which he still serves on the Board of Directors, and he is a member of the advisory committee to review electronics curriculum at Camden County Vocational School in New Jersey.
Founded in 1973, T.H.E.M. has served as the gateway for North American companies to find innovative packaging solutions. By monitoring packaging trends globally, T.H.E.M identifies innovations from all over the world for application in a diverse range of industrial and consumer product companies in North America. T.H.E.M., in conjunction with Power Packaging, has been credited as a leading force behind the commercialization of flexible stick packaging in North America.
