Program Manager

Andy Brewer is a Program Manager at The Minco Group, in Vandalia, Ohio.  Andy studied Global Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Dayton and graduated in December of 2015.  Although his daily duties include launching new injection molding programs and maintaining current production, he also manages the company's sustainability program.  Andy took advantage of a new initiative PLASTICS’ launched at the beginning of 2016 called the Zero Net Waste Program.  Zero Net Waste is a philosophy that encourages the reuse of all resources and diverting waste from landfill.  The Minco Group became the first Zero Net Waste recognized company by PLASTICS’ in July of 2016.  Andy established a "Green Team" and spearheaded the efforts towards becoming certified.  The Minco Group has made impressive strides towards becoming Zero Net Waste and they are continuing to maintain and grow their sustainability program.
