CBW Automation, an automation supplier for injection molding and thermoforming applications, recently announced the addition of two experienced plastics industry veterans to its sales and business development staff.

Industry veteran Rick Tustin joins CBW as Director of Business Development. He comes to CBW with over 40 years of plastic processing expertise, the majority of that time as general manager in the Midwest for Husky Injection Molding Systems. Rick has a deep knowledge of the packaging segment of the injection molding business, especially in the Chicago area. He has worked with many OEMs as well as suppliers, including CBW, over his career to help develop technology solutions for the high-speed injection molded packaging industry.

Also joining CBW is Sam Michael, who also comes with an extensive background in plastics processing in a wide range of applications. Michael most recently worked at Milacron, but prior to that was with Husky Injection Molding Systems. He will be relocating to North Carolina as Sales Manager for the Southeast Region. “We’ve seen a lot of new opportunities in the Southeast and that regional growth deserves this type of commitment from CBW,” says Robert Harvey, vice president of Sales & Marketing for CBW.

“We are very excited to bring Rick on as Director of Business Development, and Sam as our Southeast Regional Sales Manager,” adds Harvey. “The industry experience that both of these professionals bring to CBW is unmatched. Their vast technical knowledge and creativity, experience, and ability to contribute on many levels will be very valuable to our customers.”
