What's the Buzz?

New leader at Milacron

        Milacron Inc. has named the architect behind the growth of its Batavia-based plastics technologies business as president and chief operating officer.

        Harold J. Faig, 54, group vice president for plastics technologies since 1993, was named to the posts effective immediately. He joined the company in 1967.

        The posts were previously held by Ron Brown, chairman and CEO, who said Mr. Faig's promotion was in recognition of the leadership he had demonstrated in leading Milacron's plastics technologies business.

        This summer, Milacron sold off its metalworking technologies businesses to focus on plastic-making machinery and systems.

        In the mid-1980s, Mr. Faig led a group of Batavia executives who countered a rising tide of imported injection molding machines by totally redesigning Milacron's machines, removing 40 percent of their cost.
