Riemer Named President of Medical Device Manufacturer MRPC
MRPC, a single-source provider of silicone molding, two-material molding and micro-molding for medical device components and assemblies, has promoted Greg Riemer to company president.
Riemer had been serving as MRPC’s chief operating officer of the 89-year-old Wisconsin company. The promotion marks the completion of a three-year succession plan.
“Greg’s hands-on experience, coming in the midst of the worst recession our generation has ever known, coupled with his twenty years of industry experience in the plastic, rubber and silicone molding area, provides him with the tools appropriate to lead MRPC,” said John W. Schlump, MRPC’s chief executive officer. “During the last three years, Greg has built an executive leadership team to support the strategic growth plan for the company.”
In his six years with MRPC, Riemer has been among those at the company instrumental in guiding the firm’s focus on medical/life science device manufacturing and engineering services. In the past two years, MRPC has made multi-million dollar enhancements to its Butler manufacturing facility, including the addition of two new clean rooms and four new molding machines at the 100-employee company.
“MRPC has made many tremendous technological advancements and we have a great team throughout,” said Riemer, who is the grandson of MRPC’s founder. “We’re on the leading edge of a growing industry and I’m really excited about our prospects.”
Riemer, a Pewaukee resident, has a degree in communications and marketing from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater.
