Michael P. Jarosh

Process Engineer, Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products, Scranton, PA, USA


Michael graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 2004 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering. During his undergraduate studies, he was a Process Engineer intern at The Hershey Foods Corporation in Hershey, Pennsylvania. After graduation Michael joined with Quadrant as a project engineer in 2005 and spent around a year working on projects improving resizing / finishing equipment. In 2006 he became Polyethylene and Polypropylene Extrusion Process Engineer and then in 2008 added UHMWPE Compression Molding Process Engineer. For approximately 4 years he supported all processes in both Scranton facilities until 2010 when he transitioned into a 2 year growth opportunity as a production manager for Quadrant’s Scranton facility. After his management rotation, he moved back to engineering in 2012 supporting all processes specializing in PE & PP Sheet Extrusion, UHMWPE Compression Molding and all Compounding operations. All of these experiences enabled Michael to gain indispensable technical skills, problem solving, personal skills, and business knowledge to help influence positive change throughout the facility.

As a Process Engineer Michael utilizes his technical background to influence change over time, both internally at the manufacturing facilities and externally at suppliers and end users. The Chemical Engineering curriculum at Pennsylvania State University provided the foundation needed to continually self-teach new technologies and also to leverage technical knowledge of chemical manufacturing processes to improve product quality, increase manufacturing performance, decrease scrap generation, and drive cost savings across the supply chain. Michael has a passion for innovation, and using the new technologies to influence positive change any time possible. Through his work he helps to streamline production of new materials, run production trials, and continue to optimize manufacturing processes while keeping pace with daily production and maintenance needs.

Michael is in the process of completing a Six Sigma Black Belt project, which he anticipates to complete in 2018. For this project he is leading a cross functional team through systematic problem solving, where he will have the chance to apply DMAIC concepts first hand through a Design of Experiments (DOE) to understand how several process variables impact machine productivity at Quadrant.
