Harry “Bud” G. Hanna Jr., Operating Advisor, Industrial Manufacturing

Mr. Hanna has 40 years of experience in the polymer and plastic injection molding industries, including significant experience with both Celanese and Leggett & Platt. Mr. Hanna began his career as a tooling engineer, responsible for designing and building all of the machine tool and die sets for a custom molding company. Mr. Hanna then moved to Celanese, where he was a material development engineer, working with customers to design and implement polymer-based product applications that did not traditionally employ plastic parts. Mr. Hanna then went into business for himself, eventually purchasing and running South Central Plastics, a custom plastic injection molding operation. At SCP, Mr. Hanna built his own tooling and manufactured proprietary plastic products for his customers. Being a fully integrated molding operation, Mr. Hanna became a single-source supplier for many of his accounts, eventually selling SCP to one of his large customers, Leggett & Platt. After the sale of SCP, Mr. Hanna remained as a general manager with L&P Plastics for five years before returning again to entrepreneurial endeavors.
