Andrew Peterson - COO
Andrew has spent most of his career in the plastics toolmaking industry, with family-owned Pyramid Plastics and Industrial Molds serving as his playgrounds in his youth, and as the site of his summer jobs as a teenager. In 2008, Andrew graduated from Wright State University with a degree in finance and returned to what he knew best: the plastic industry. He has experienced almost every element of this family business, having worked on the shop floor, as a tool assembler, as the shop foreman, and ultimately as an account manager.
Today, Andrew leads the business in its third generation as the COO. He also serves as a board member on the American Mold Builders Association, and in his free time he enjoys spending time with his loving wife and two kids.
Tim Peterson - President
Tim truly has the heart and soul of a mold-maker, having spent most of his life within the walls of Industrial Molds. At age 10 he started sweeping the shop floor; by age 16, he became the company’s delivery boy. After high school, Tim began a four-year mold-making apprenticeship program, and in the ’90s took on the responsibility of lead toolmaker. He expanded his knowledge of molds, components, mold-fitting, and other aspects of quality in mold-making through his tenure in quality control and account management. On his journey as a second-generation leader, Tim has served as both vice president and, now, president for this family-owned business.
Always eager to share his knowledge of mold-making and the business aspects of running a mold manufacturing company, Tim has been active in the industry in many ways over the years, including serving as a board member of the American Mold Builders Association.
