Speaker: Mark Strachan
Mark Strachan’s career in the packaging industry started in 1982 while serving his apprenticeship as an Electronics Engineer for Metal Box South Africa. He started his own plastics blister manufacturing business (PacMark) in the garage of his home, which quickly grew to a prominent packaging and thermoforming business. Strachan’s hunger to learn more about the plastic industry led him to sell PacMark and move to Germany where he worked for a large plastics packaging firm and gained valuable hands-on experience in thermoforming and extrusion processes. During the past 30 plus years, he has held engineering and technology positions with companies located in Europe and the United States. With increased requests for his expert knowledge and his continued interest in teaching, Strachan formed Global Thermoforming Training Technologies, Inc. He has been presenting classroom and hands-on training to thermoforming and sheet-extrusion companies worldwide. Strachan is the former Chairman and board member of SPE Thermoforming Division.
