OAK BROOK, Ill., Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TricorBraun Design & Engineering Group announces the promotion of Matthew Ramsdell to Vice President, Design & Engineering. Formerly Director of Project Management, Ramsdell has been with TricorBraun since 2014. "Matt has made a tremendous contribution to creating a worry-free, results-oriented process for our customers from initiation and planning to commercialization and execution," says Becky Donner, Senior VP, Design & Engineering. She goes on to say that his attention to the technical details, his knowledge and experience have taken the team to a new level in terms of process improvement.
Some of the successful work that Ramsdell has been involved with at TricorBraun includes Triumph Pharmaceuticals SmartMouth, PL Developments and many more. SmartMouth involved a complex multi-component dispensing system designed to improve functionality and enhance the consumer experience. The challenge was in taking an existing design and making it manufacturable without losing the integrity of the design. The award-winning package achieved form, fit and function. According to Donner, the project charter that he has helped to create has made a significant impact on capturing project details upfront for a smoother, worry-free process from start to finish. In his new role, Ramsdell will be responsible for managing design and engineering but also for the continued development of quality resources as they relate to the execution of custom packaging solutions. He is charged with leading the team in the effective and efficient transformation of concepts into manufacturable packaging components and systems with a focus on process optimization. Additionally, he will be prioritizing work, identifying design and engineering resource and training needs, analyzing results to effectively capture key metrics such as speed-to-market, and engaging with outside development partners.
