About Todd Shepherd: Todd had a jump-start in the family business, deciding while in college that the fledgling thermoforming business started by his father and mother had a powerful pull for him. Todd, at 44, has over 25 years of thermoforming experience – literally working from the ground up. He started as a machine operator and then moved through the roles of production, planning/scheduling, purchasing and engineering. His acquired technical knowledge is an important factor in working closely with Shepherd’s engineering and design team on new products and systems. Today, Todd’s title is President and he oversees all departments.
Todd has been active with SPE, presenting technical seminars on thermoforming from the basics through the steps to final production. He is also on the forefront of award-winning designs in the thermoforming field, specifically with the world-renowned “Dupont Awards” and other SPE, PAC and VIP competitions.
