Lewiston, MN June 28, 2016 – PlastiCert, celebrating its 35th year of innovative and quality plastic injection molding design and molding manufacturing services, announces promoting Lana Knabel to her new position of Human Resources and Finance Manager.

With the retirement of Robert Geesey, PlastiCert has promoted Lana Knabel to the position of Human Resources and Finance Manager. Knabel, celebrating her 12th year with the company this month, has been increasing her responsibilities and knowledge base during her entire tenure. Starting out performing simple filing and office work, Lana took ownership of the Customer Service/ Order Entry Function, becoming a trusted and reliable conduit for customers getting their products when they needed them. Lana came to master duties in Purchasing, Shipping/Receiving, and Production Planning. With the change in ownership, she began to handle some Accounting functions. For the last year, she has been under the direct tutelage of recently retired HR & Finance Director Robert Geesey to prepare her for this promotion.

“Lana is one of the brightest people I have encountered in all my years of manufacturing,’” commented Craig Porter, President, and Owner of PlastiCert. “From early on I could see that she got the logic of manufacturing. Entering orders, ordering material, making product and shipping, the steps, requirements and flow came natural to her. Combined with the feedback we received from customers on their interaction with her, she’s been a rising star for us.”

PlastiCert was founded in 1981 and is a privately held corporation with headquarters and manufacturing in Lewiston Minnesota. Initially a custom molder targeted at the electronics industry, today PlastiCert is a one-stop shop for OEMs in telecom, industrial, computer, avionics, medical markets and more.
