Meet Ann Marie
Ann Marie Neideigh, Senior Outside Sales Representative in the Curbell Plastics Philadelphia/New Jersey location, has nearly 20 years of experience in the performance plastics industry. She helps a wide range of businesses — including machine builders, machine shops, visual merchandisers, industrial equipment manufacturers, and others — improve product performance and efficiency through the use of lightweight, cost-effective plastic materials.
Ann Marie draws upon her extensive understanding of plastic material properties and manufacturing processes to guide customers toward selecting the right polymer for the job at hand. She frequently advises design and engineering teams on substituting a plastic material for metal, glass, or wood. Her experience working for global plastics companies on both the manufacturing and distributing fronts gives her an inside perspective that benefits any application, from food processing machinery components to stunning point-of-purchase displays for retail use.
With experience in both inside and outside sales, providing stellar customer service is the center of every engagement. Customers who have worked with Ann Marie for a long time appreciate that in working with her, they know they’ll get consistency, accountability, and an honest buying experience.
“I pride myself in putting the needs of the customer first,” she says.
Ann Marie is an active member of the International Association of Plastics Distribution (IAPD), where she has completed several of the organization’s training programs and stays up to date on the latest trends shaping the world of performance plastics. She proudly participates in the IAPD’s Women in Plastics initiative to help create and enhance professional and leadership opportunities for women in the plastics industry.
When she’s not helping customers derive greater value from the use of plastic materials, family time is her favorite time. Ann Marie enjoys playing with her grandson, hiking, and walking her dogs.
A Partner in Your Success
“I like a challenge, whether it is helping with a new product or analyzing a failed product,” Ann Marie says. “Every day is completely different from the previous — different people, a different industry, and different applications with different demands. I cherish the opportunity to work in unity with my customers to solve problems and grow their business.”
In one example, Ann Marie helped a manufacturer of lapping and polishing equipment. The OEM wanted an alternative to steel for an idler gear. Ann Marie introduced the company to oil-filled cast nylon. One of the key benefits of this material is that it allows for the elimination of grease. This was critical for the customer, since the machines operate in a clean room environment for the semiconductor industry.
