Thomas Bechtel
Sales Director Packaging & Medical
Mold-Masters Europa GmbH, Germany, Milacron Group

During his studies in the United States, Thomas had first connections with the injection molding industry working as a toolmaker for complex technical plastic parts. 

In 1997 he started his professional career at Husky Injection Molding Systems. The initial focus was on hot runner service which then evolved into project management and direct sales responsibilities.

With the increasing focus on turnkey systems, Thomas started to concentrate on injection molding machines and auxiliaries for the packaging business. During this time he gained a deep understanding in the driving factors for producers and converters.

A three year assignment to a leading European toolmaker for the caps and closures industry allowed Thomas to further expand his knowledge in tool and plastic part design – achieving a deep understanding for the interaction of injection molding hardware and its impact on beverage package functionality and costing.

Thomas joined Milacron / Mold-Masters in January 2017 as Sales Director Packaging. His mandate is to drive sales and setup the organization and its products, processes and structures to continuously grow this business segment.
