Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products Appoints New Global Business Line Manager

READING, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (Quadrant EPP), the global leader of high-performance engineering plastic and polymer innovations, has announced that Mr. Terry Folk has accepted a promotion as Global Business Line Manager - Cast & Custom Cast Products and will be based out of the company's US headquarters.

A 34-year veteran of Quadrant EPP, Mr. Folk has maintained key roles at the company's US headquarters in Reading, Pennsylvania, with his most recent responsibilities as the Supply Chain Manager of the American markets. As the Global Business Line Manager, Mr. Folk will remain an executive member of the Americas regional leadership team and share responsibility for profit and loss with the regional Presidents.

Across the globe his initial primary focus will be to assemble and lead an expert team of versatile managers. They will be tasked to develop and implement strategic and operational plans to increase market position and boost financial performance in the cast & custom cast business segment of Quadrant EPP.

"When a customer selects custom casting they're seeking an economical alternative to machining or injection molding, more for small or medium production runs of fabricated parts," Terry remarked. "Custom casting is ideal for parts that are too large or maybe too costly for injection mold. Our unique process reduces scrap and cycle times with the ability to produce parts that have nearly unlimited size options."

Mr. Folk also stated that he aims to boost synergy among the international management group by leveraging all of Quadrant's vast resources to effectively reduce time to market.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, explained what policy is, he showed how policy should be ar...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time.

In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...
Agile, which started in the development organization, has gradually expanded into other areas downstream - namely IT and Operations.

Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry. Resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on.

Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
