About the founder
Mike Durina has an AAS in Plastic Engineering from Ferris State University and a BS in Industrial Engineering from Kent State University. From 1978 to January 1984, he worked under several capacities for three separate injection molding firms. In February of 1984, he began a career at Spirex that lasted 16 years. It is here that Mike came to fully understand and appreciate how important the plasticating unit is to the injection molding process. Under his leadership as VP of Sales & Service, Mike grew Spirex sales from $1.8 million and 18 employees to $22 million and 180 employees.
In 1999, Mike founded Md Plastics Inc. as a designer and manufacturer of plasticating unit components. Throughout the years, Mike developed several new products that add value to the injection molding and extrusion industry, all of which can be found on this website. His latest invention, the Melt Profiler, measures melt temperature Real time and calculates a "Power Factor" that can be used to predict and document part quality. It’s the only system of its kind and a much needed innovation for the injection molding world.
Mike has been awarded eight patents with one pending. Stay tuned for more.
