Why is it important to have an expert in the sector of automotive packaging?
Technical resources are important to support all market segments; however, within the automotive market there is a high material performance expectation and technical specification requirements to avoid vehicle production line shutdowns. It is critical to have a team of technical experts to support automotive packaging engineers from first article proto-type developments through commercial vehicle launch.
What are your most important tasks as an expert at Freudenberg Performance Materials?
In my opinion, one of my key roles at Freudenberg Performance Materials is to be a liaison or a bridge from our external customers or potential new clients to our internal product offerings, product developments, or global resource teams. Making a connection with people in an effort to help offer technical textile material solutions has been an important task that provides value as an industry technical resource.
What are your next steps as an expert?
Freudenberg Performance Materials is a leader in many technical markets and emphasizes continuous training and education to stay abreast of market trends and new innovations. I will be completing an Automotive Packaging Certificate as part of my continued technical packaging education for 2022. As we look ahead to the New Year, I plan to attend the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada to be inspired by technical production innovations showcased from leading global brands and upcoming automotive companies. The show takes place from January 5-8, 2023.
