Women in the Plastics Industry: Elena Mangano

We are proud to share the British Plastics & Rubber interview with our own Elena Mangano, Market Development Specialist. In their new series, Women in Plastics, they take a look at her career path:

“As an Applications Engineer, I was able to work with our customers on developing mechanical testing solutions for all sorts of materials and components, spanning everything from biomedical devices to metals, and of course, plastics … I am often asked if being a female within a male dominated industry such as engineering is challenging, and to them I say that yes, perhaps it can mean that you need to prove yourself that little bit more, but also that I have taken motivation from this with which to push myself to be the best that I can be. I will say that since the beginning of my career in engineering 4 years ago, I have already seen a difference in the way that women are encouraged and welcomed into technical industries like plastics and engineering.”
