President & Chief Executive Officer
Chris has over 20 years of experience in the PVC extrusion and injection molding industry. He is a second generation owner of the business that his father, Phillip Cooper started in 1987. Chris began his early years with the business learning from the ground up. Given the wisdom his Father imparted, Phillip required Chris to learn all aspects of the manufacturing process before he could take an office position. Chris spent countless hours in the plants learning the trade. From mixing, tooling setups, tooling breakdown, startups, shutdowns, troubleshooting and machinery maintenance Chris learned every aspect of the production side. From there he was promoted to General Manager with responsibilities of handling the day-to-day activities. Chris would keep this role until 2005, when he purchased the business from his Father and became President & CEO. Chris continues to run the business with a “hands on” approach that was engrained in him from his early years with the company.
Chris holds a degree in Business Management (minor in Small Business & Entrepreneurship) from Florida State University and an M.B.A. from Florida Southern College.
