“If it’s out there,” says Michael Martin, Senior Inside Sales Representative at the Curbell Plastics San Diego location, “I’ve probably helped locate and supply it worldwide.”
Mike speaks from experience — more than 40 years of it, that is.
He was already a 20-plus-year veteran of the well-respected Cal Plastics and Metals before the company became part of Curbell Plastics, one of the nation’s top-five performance plastics distributors, in 2016. His comprehensive knowledge of plastic materials, metal alloys, and part fabrication gives Curbell customers a significant advantage when selecting materials for industrial applications. He is often able to offer options that reduce costs and improve performance — for example, substituting a plastic material for metal — that enable customers to derive greater value from the materials they utilize for various applications.
Over the course of his career, Mike has helped engineers and designers in a broad range of industries, with particular focus on manufacturing, machine shops, and shipyards. “I’ve seen just about everything related to the plastics and metals industries,” he adds. “My goal is to make sure each customer gets the right material for the job — on time, every time.”
Mike is a veteran of the U.S. Navy, where he traveled the world (“Best education I ever received,” he notes) and honed his technical prowess performing maintenance on missile guidance systems.
In his free time, Mike enjoys off-roading on his quad or his side-by-side, and eating fine Mexican cuisine. He lives in Mexico and often volunteers his time assisting children and staff at orphanages there.
