Michael Mathias is V.P. of Business Development at New-Tech Packaging. Serving Tennessee and Mississippi, New-Tech is a manufacturer, converter and contract packager. With over twenty years of industry experience Mathias developed packaging strategies at Mead and International Paper. His Masters in International Business (Saint Louis University) fueled his passion to deliver lowest total cost solutions through innovation, automation and technology.
New-Tech Packaging began operations in 1984 as a corrugated sheet plant providing corrugated boxes and fabricated foam. From a modest building on Huron Avenue, the company established a way of doing business that was three fold: 1) build strong customer partnerships, 2) offer specialized and creative packaging, and 3) satisfy customers by continuously meeting their needs.
As the company grew, it moved to its current location in the heart of Memphis. In 2004 J.C. Heotis, the Plant Manager, purchased the company and became its President. He continued to run operations and recruited Mike Mathias as V.P. of Business Development. Together they brought vision and drive, setting New-Tech on its current growth curve and quadrupling revenues over the next nine years.
