Ken Smith

KenSmith3-smallPlant Manager at InterTrade Industries

Mr. Smith began his thermoforming career in January of 1990 after a stint in the US Army providing leadership in helicopter, self-propelled artillery, and wheeled vehicle maintenance. Starting as an Operator, Ken worked his way through Lead, Supervisor, Process Engineer, and Plant Manager positions at various other companies before accepting the Plant Manager position at InterTrade Industries in June 2016.

Mr. Smith has been privileged to lead plant turn-arounds for small family-owned businesses and large corporations. He most enjoys helping people improve their performance in this endeavor because, while well-maintained equipment and solid effective process are crucial to an organization’s effectiveness and longevity, the most vital component to that end is the productivity of skilled and dedicated people.
