February 2nd, 2023 – Marinette WI – On February 1st, 2023, The Marinette Menominee Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professionals Group, WAVE, came to visit David Mielke, President & CEO, and tour ChemDesign’s Technical Center in Marinette, WI. ChemDesign hosted the first “Beer with a Boss” event to help the future leaders of the area business network and gain professional insights and advice from an area leader.
Nineteen professionals from the area joined us after hours to learn more about ChemDesign and the role of a CEO in the chemical industry. ChemDesign is a leader in contract chemical manufacture and shared its role in manufacturing B2B products focused on green chemistry, reduced energy use, safer food packaging, recycled polymers, and improving agriculture. After the overview and Q&A, they conducted a brief tour of the Tech Center. The group then observed some lab-scale chemical reactions destined for commercial manufacture. They also saw an overview of the state-of-the-art analytical labs, staffed 24/7, to ensure the high-quality products meet all our customer’s expectations. The afternoon wrapped up with the young professionals joining Kevin Possi, Engineering Manager, and David for food and drinks at Ironworks on Main.
