Lopez can look back on 30 years in the blow molding industry. After stints at Battenfeld-Fischer, Uniloy and Bekum, he joined Kautex Maschinenbau GmbH as Senior Process and Technical Project Engineer in 2011. Lopez initially took on the role of treasurer and secretary in the SPE, before being elected chairman of the Blow Molding Division in 2004. Since then, he has made a major contribution to raising the division’s profile within the industry. This has led to a significant increase in visitors and exhibitor numbers at the SPE Annual Blow Molding Conference (ABC) over recent years. Lopez, 58, was also keen to support youth development, setting up a special blow molding training class and a training program in blow molding.
“Our company is proud to have an employee at the top of such a respected organization. We would like to thank Ben Lopez for his great dedication and are pleased that he will be continuing to use his extensive knowledge to drive our industry forward,” comments Andreas Lichtenauer, Managing Partner at Kautex Maschinenbau.
