The ChemQuest Group recently announced the addition of Robert G. Kramer as a director. He reportedly brings decades of specialty chemical manufacturing operations, financial, and sales experience, having held multiple positions from sales to executive-level management. Furthering his expertise in lean operations management, Kramer holds a Six Sigma green belt. Using his expertise in manufacturing operations, process optimization, and business development, he will aid in the expansion of ChemQuest’s Manufacturing Excellence pillar.

Kramer most recently served as president at rose plastic, wherein he was responsible for the overall financials and operations for North America. His leadership in this position led to improvements in operational performance while helping to stabilize employee turnover and morale despite the pandemic. In addition, he was instrumental in establishing a team to successfully set up a new medical production facility, which required ISO 13485 certification to include the transition of customers.

“After a brief introduction to ChemQuest through a former colleague and now current ChemQuest Associate, I am thrilled to join and be a part of the ChemQuest Team,” Kramer said. “My background in various general management and manufacturing roles, mostly in the converting of polymers into compounds and packaging solutions complements the ChemQuest strategy in enhancing operational excellence and value creation. I look forward to using my knowledge and experience in helping customers be more successful.”

According to Dan Murad, ChemQuest CEO, “Bob is exactly the kind of person we aim to recruit at ChemQuest. His broad experience in specialty chemical operational management paired with his general management and communication skills make him a welcomed addition to the team. I look forward to working with Bob on future Manufacturing Excellence projects.”
