Happy holidays fellow product developers/ Inventors.

For our December 12th 2013 general meeting we will be visited by Jared Hopkins from Reynold Advanced Materials. They are a plastics distributor in Charlotte NC.  They have everything you need for prototyping with plastics and molding, with a great show room here in Charlotte.

There will be demonstrations and products at the presentation.

Visit their site: Reynolds Advanced Materials

We will also open discussions for the 2014 board.

Jared Hopkins

Jared  is a 2002 graduate of the Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC.  After USC he held a variety of  positions in both the real estate and the packaging industries.  In  2004, he just happened to talk to an old family friend that had a resin  and silicone distribution company.  They were looking for a sales representative and he was looking for an opportunity. He has been in  the resin plastic and elastomer business ever since!  He brings over six  years of out-side technical sales and two years of inside technical support to the seminar.  This experience along with many trade shows and  hands on seminars in fields as diverse as concrete construction and  medical simulation to machine tooling and prototyping always make for an  interesting hands-on demonstration.
