RICHMOND, IND. — Primex Plastics Corporation, the leader in custom extruded plastic sheet and roll products for thermoforming, fabrication and printing, is pleased to announce the appointment of Theresa M. Vanna to the new position of Print Market Specialist. Vanna has over 30 years of printing industry experience in both flexible and rigid plastic sheet and films. Since 1987 she has served the graphic arts industry as a resource for printable materials for point of purchase, point of sale and in-store environment applications. Vanna serves on the Board of Directors of the Sustainable Green Printing (SGP) Partnership. She will report to Vice President of Sales and Marketing Tim Schultz and be based in the Chicago area.
According to Schultz, “Primex has been supplying the graphics market for many years but we haven’t had a full-time resource dedicated to it. Our recent growth and potential in this market segment demands that we have someone with Theresa’s vast background leading our efforts and supporting our customers.”
Vanna has served in management capacities at several other suppliers of flexible and rigid printable plastics. Her most recent position was as a business director at Transilwrap Company where she was responsible for the creation and expansion of markets for printable media.
Vanna, through her vast network in the graphics arts industry, will be responsible for Primex’s expanded presence in this industry and developing new market opportunities for its lines of printable materials including polystyrene, polyethylene, polypropylene, Cor-x® twin-wall extrusions and Bubble-X™, a high-impact, durable polypropylene board.
In joining Primex, Vanna stated, “I look forward to drawing on my background and skills to advance Primex’s position in the graphics industry. It’s a great time to join the company as they leverage their “One Company” philosophy in partnership with Primex Design & Fabrication and Primex Color, Compounding & Additives to better serve their customers.”
