Full ImagePreview ImageHistory of the PET Bottle by Tom Brady | BookBaby Bookshophttps://store.bookbaby.com/book/history-of-the-pet-bottle1Dr. Tom Brady began his career at Owens-Illinois, Inc. in 1972, just as the carbonated soft drink companies began asking their suppliers to create and offer family-size carbonated beverage containers, which required an industry-wide conversion from glass and aluminum to plastic. As a fledging Senior Scientist, Tom, along with his O-I colleagues and along with other industry plastic package suppliers, accepted the challenge and, over just a 10-year period, created an entirely new industry to supply sustainable PET packaging to the beverage, food, and personal care product industries When Owens-Illinois abandoned commercialization of the new and successful plastic PET container in 1985 because it was affecting O-I's glass container business, Tom left O-I and founded Plastic Technologies, Inc., with the initial goal of helping the Coca-Cola Company to self-manufacture its own PET plastic containers. Over its 35-year history, PTI has become a key technology development supplier and manufacturer of PET packaging for many of the major global brand owners, resin suppliers, and machine manufacturers, and PTI has also emerged as a leading industry source for training, manufacturing support, recycling technologies and laboratory testing. PTI is known for developing and commercializing sustainable plastic packaging products and strategies. Over its 35-year history, PTI has spawned 5 subsidiary recycling, manufacturing, and technology development companies, including Phoenix Technologies International, PTI-Europe, Preform Technologies, The Packaging Conference, and Guardian Medical USA, and PTI is planning for an exciting future by partnering with other leading industry recycling, manufacturing, and medical companies, here in the US and in Europe. The History of the PET Bottle fulfills Tom's long-time desire to capture the history of the PET container industry, including many important stories which have been contributed by former PET industry colleagues.

Full ImagePreview ImageImpact of Owens-Illinois On the World by Dr. Tom Brady | BookBaby Bookshophttps://store.bookbaby.com/book/impact-of-owens-illinois-on-the-worldDr. Tom Brady began his career at Owens-Illinois, Inc. in 1972, just as the carbonated soft drink companies began asking their suppliers to create and offer family-size carbonated beverage containers, which required an industry-wide conversion from glass and aluminum to plastic. As a fledging Senior Scientist, Tom, along with his O-I colleagues and along with other industry plastic package suppliers, accepted the challenge and, over a short 10-year period, created an entirely new industry to supply sustainable PET packaging to the beverage, food, and personal care product industries. During that same 10-year dynamic technology and business development era at O-I and as O-I decided to refocus on its fundamental glass container business, many of O-I 's talented technology and business professionals who had helped diversify O-I's business portfolio, left O-I to either start or operate other major businesses. The Impact of Owens-Illinois on the World is Tom's effort to capture the stories of 29 of those former O-I employees who, without competing with O-I, employed their talents and O-I backgrounds, to create or nurture many dynamic and successful business enterprises. Many of Tom's colleagues who are mentioned in this book are no longer with us so there was little background information to draw upon and there are undoubtedly additional former O-I employees who have started companies but are not included in this history. However, it is Tom's wish that this compilation will begin to recognize the significant contributions that former O-I employees have made to society, in addition to what they contributed during their careers at O-I.Hardcover
