Aroplax Employee Highlight – Roger Sawyer

Aroplax encourages and supports the development of our employees. Studies have shown companies who invest in training and developing their employees benefit by increased employee engagement, productivity, and overall better business results.

Recently Roger Sawyer, a key member of Aroplax’s technical team, completed his Level 1 certification through Kruse Training, Inc. The on-line training program included modules on molding fundamentals, polymer materials, part design, mold design, and processing. Like Aroplax, Roger believes that continuing education is important: “Things are always changing, and it’s important to keep your skills sharp.

One of the things Roger liked best about the Kruse program was that it was very informative, and he could go at his own pace. “There were many things to rediscover and learn, given the increased sophistication in tool design and materials.”

Roger intends to complete the other 3 levels of the Kruse certification program and become master certified. “I’d recommend the program to anyone in injection molding, as it provides you a great foundation of knowledge.”

Thomas Schoen, Aroplax Director of Operations, appreciates Roger taking the time to complete the training and apply his enhanced knowledge and skills on the job: “Training and development align with one of Aroplax’s Core Values, Continuous Improvement, which in Roger’s words ‘makes us better every day.”

Congratulations, Roger, on your certification!
