Kirk Winstead Named President
Kirk Winstead, who became Chief Operating Officer of IPEG, Inc., in 2015, is adding President to his title as he assumes overall IPEG commercial responsibility, with the heads of the Group’s four subsidiaries reporting directly to him.
Headquartered in Cranberry Township, PA, IPEG comprises a family of leading brands serving the global plastics-processing, waste-recycling, and industrial heat-transfer markets. IPEG brands include Conair, a global manufacturer of auxiliary equipment for plastics processing; Thermal Care, a leading developer and manufacturer of custom heat-transfer systems and equipment, serving more than 50 industries; Republic Machine, a leader in the design and manufacture of single-shaft shredders for recycling of plastics and other materials; and Pelletron Corporation, a global leader in conveying and dedusting technologies.

Rapid was part of the IPEG family until it was sold in 2015. At that time, Winstead was named IPEG COO, assuming responsibility for Operations, Information Technology and Human Resources.
