Dave Felicijan has joined Accu-Mold, a Portage manufacturer for the medical, consumer, defense, and automotive markets in the United States and abroad.
Felicijan will manage the manufacturer's tooling and production operations and will collaborate with the Accu-Mold team to develop processes and systems to support the strategic business direction and diversification.
He will also lead the implementation of Accu-Mold’s new Rapid Tooling segment. The Rapid Tooling will allow Accu-Mold to deliver injection molded components in hours and days versus weeks and months.
Felicijan previously was a senior team member at Western Diversified Plastic LLC, a Certified Minority Manufacturer in Mattawan, and was part of a startup that achieved "phenomenal growth in an unpredictable economy," according to the company.
He was responsible for diversified business development and program management that encompassed product design, tooling, production and automated assembly. Prior to that, he was the Sales Manager for Engineered Plastic Components, based in Cologne, Germany.
Accu-Mold, a certified minority business enterprise, is a leader in plastic engineering and tooling manufacturing, offering product design, tool design, rapid tool manufacturing, production tool manufacturing and high/low volume production injection molding and assembly.
Troy Clay, CEO of Mno-Bmadsen, owners of Accu-Mold, says that as owners they are "investing heavily in technology and systems that offer great products and service to our customers, including advanced Computer Aided Design, 3-D printing, and prototype development."
Talent is also a top priority, Clay says and notes that Felicijan has more than 29 years of experience in the plastics and manufacturing industries that make him well positioned to lead this company and the investments Mno-Bmadsen is making in it.
