Tessy Plastics Appoints New President, Stafford Frearson
“Throughout my career I’ve been privileged to work alongside some of the most talented people in the injection molding industry. Watching, listening, and learning alongside an amazing group of people has helped shape not only my career, but also me personally,” said Frearson. “I am excited for the next chapter in my career with Tessy and to continue building on the success of both Henry and Roland.”
Roland Beck will also now transition from president to Chief Executive Officer. Beck is the son of Henry Beck, one of the original founders of Tessy. Henry Beck started the family business in 1973 and served as Tessy’s President for nearly 30 years. In 2002, the elder Beck finally convinced his son Roland to step away from his passion as a technical Tessy team member and move into the role of President. Roland has since led Tessy’s monumental growth to over $500M in annual sales and has grown the business to eight facilities in Central New York, three in Webster NY, one in Erie PA, one in Meadville PA, and two in Shanghai, China. Throughout that journey, Beck and Frearson have worked alongside each other and have created an incomparable approach to influencing and progressing the company.
Stafford Frearson has gained a vast amount of experience throughout his career by successfully performing in various roles within the company. Frearson grew up in Barnstable, England, and while attending school and throughout college, he worked part-time at a mold manufacturer where he acquired a deep understanding of the nuances of the injection molding industry. Upon graduating from North Devon Community College in the United Kingdom in 1997, Frearson relocated to Syracuse, N.Y. and became a part of the Tessy team.
Leveraging his experience with multiple disciplines at Tessy, Frearson grew into management roles and was promoted to the Vice President of Engineering in 2018, overseeing Research & Development, Tool Room, Engineering, Automation, and Information Technology departments in addition to managing the acquisitions of two primary Tessy subsidiaries – Tessy Automation and Tessy Tooling.
