Directing Manager: New Technology, Corporate Design
PTI Engineered Plastics
Scott Kraemer is the Directing Manager of New Technology, Corporate Design, and the Technical Academy for PTI Engineered Plastics. Scott has over 25 years experience working in the manufacturing industry, holding a variety of leadership positions. His extensive design background includes, but is not limited to: plastic injection molds, sheet metal stampings, product design and development and fixtures/gages. In his work, Scott uses his unique skills to visualize the entire manufacturing process by just looking at designs or parts. Over the past few years, Scott has been deeply engaged in the development of additive manufacturing and its role in the future of product development and production. His current role at PTI enables him to explore the new technology and develop innovative ways to incorporate it into modern manufacturing. Scott is passionate about sharing his knowledge and experience with others, especially the future generations. A couple of years ago, he developed the PTI Technical Academy, an extra-curricular program for local high school students. This initiative was designed to educate participants about careers in manufacturing, specifically plastic injection molding, with hopes of filling the current void of youth interest towards the industry.
