PSI-Polymer Systems is pleased to announce it has named Don Macnamara as their new General Manager. Macnamara, a 27-year industry veteran, will report to PSI’s owner, Glenn Woodcock, and will coordinate strategic development and oversee all daily business operations.
PSI-Polymer Systems is a leading manufacturer of US built extrusion melt processing equipment.

For the first 15 years of his career he was global director of sales and marketing for Beringer where he worked with Bart Jones, founder of Extek and one of the founding collaborators of PSI-Polymer Systems. At Beringer, Macnamara guided product line direction, established Beringer Europe and grew the company’s Asian base.
“This is truly an exciting time for small businesses in our industry,” said Macnamara. “PSI-Polymer Systems demonstrates the very best qualities of a new entrepreneurial class. The company’s sense of urgency, responsiveness and openness to new ideas and change permeates its culture at all levels.
