Ariana Spencer Manages Packaging Design Center!
23 September 2019
Larson Packaging Company (LPC) is pleased to announce that Ariana Spencer has been promoted to design manager. This is a new role created with the expansion of our packaging design center and engineering team. Ariana has been instrumental in the growth of LPC’s foam fabrication, bringing structure to the design process, and fostering design for manufacturing: creating a seamless integration between design and manufacturing.
COO Ray Horner said, “After I joined Larson Packaging Company, I was impressed by Ariana’s depth of knowledge, and ability to build and manage a design team. The LPC design team is impressive because they produce innovative, material-neutral packaging designs that meet our customer’s requirements, timelines, and budgets.”
CEO Mark Hoffman sees Ariana’s promotion as an important step for expanding LPC’s capabilities. Mark said, “Ariana was a strategic hire for us almost two years ago, when we began expanding our foam business. She is an excellent designer, customer resource, and company leader. Since joining LPC, she has also developed additional strengths in ATA case and crate design. We’ve built a great team and we are excited to see her leading it!”
About her job, Ariana said, “Working at LPC has been a great opportunity for me, I’ve always worked closely with customers. Now, I also work closely with manufacturing, which has made me more aware of how good design decisions affect quality, consistency, and cost.
“I’ve also become a better designer, because I’ve gone from working primarily with corrugated to designing high performance crates and ATA cases. This has given me an appreciation for many different materials and the kinds of packaging applications in which they excel. I enjoy the challenging fast-paced environment at LPC, and I am involved in many projects everyday.”
