A Word from Andy Routsis, Founder and President

Like most plastics professionals, I started out on the production floor. I have since owned a tooling shop, sold and rebuilt molding machines, and am currently active in the industry as a hands-on engineer, trainer and adjunct professor at the University of Massachusetts Lowell Department of Engineering.

Throughout my years in the industry, I’ve seen firsthand the gross amount of money and resources wasted – as well as opportunities missed – because of poorly trained workforces. I’ve also observed why some training programs fall short: too often, they’re too disruptive, too inconvenient, too temporary or just too dull to have any lasting benefit.

Routsis Training was founded over 30 years ago to fill this pressing need in the plastics industry for engaging, ongoing training.

Today, I’m honored to say that our training materials are used in over 2,400 companies in 37 countries. This includes 93 learning centers and educational institutions that use our interactive training programs as part of their standard curriculum.

Routsis is proud to be exclusively endorsed by the Society of Plastics Engineers. If you have questions about any of our programs or our approach, please don’t hesitate to ask Routsis today.
