Custom Profiles Welcomes Extrusion Industry Veteran Mark Hensley to Engineering Team

FITZGERALD, GA.— Custom Profiles, a leading manufacturer of plastic extrusions, recently welcomed Mark Hensley to its engineering team. Hensley joined the organization in September 2021. A well-known expert in the plastic extrusion industry, Hensley brings decades of experience and proven success to Custom Profiles, which will help the company better serve its customers and further its innovation.

Hensley attended vocational school in his teens and began his career as a machinist and tool and die maker. His father, also a tool and die maker by trade, founded an extrusion company that Mark joined early on in his career where he spent his days running extruders and learning through experience. Hensley then began taking courses in engineering and drafting and started working his way up in the family business in the engineering department.

After the family business was acquired, Hensley moved on to hone his skills in several different facets of plastic extrusions: windows, fences, transportation, and signage and POP. He is responsible for the tooling design of many items that millions of people see every day, including semi-truck side skirts and displays at some of the United States’ biggest brick-and-mortar retailers. He has now amassed decades of experience in extrusion, having designed over 3,000 different profiles and shapes in his career. Hensley also holds a U.S. patent for one of his designs.

In his role at Custom Profiles, Hensley works with his fellow engineers and sales professionals to proactively solve the challenges of producing shapes for customers. His responsibilities include assessing designs for feasibility and making any adjustments to enhance the manufacturability of the shape, designing dies and downstream tooling, and helping the operations team troubleshoot production. 

“We’re incredibly lucky to have Mark on our team,” said Custom Profiles company president Scott Sheffield. “His experience and perspective are going to help our entire organization level up and allow our customers to continue to drive innovation.”

Hensley also has many well-established relationships with quality tool and die makers who can provide extra support to Custom Profiles for especially complex projects. These outside resources will also allow Custom Profiles to expedite tooling work for customers, helping them meet their deadlines and commitments.

“I am looking forward to proving myself in the organization,” Hensley remarked. “I am driven by success and I put heart and soul into everything I do. I’m grateful to be part of this team.”

About Custom Profiles: Custom Profiles is a family-owned, U.S.A. company that was founded in 1990 with a simple idea: that the business of plastics extrusion could be done even better so more manufacturing companies like yours can grow. The company focuses on solving customers’ problems and preventing headaches along the way with warm and friendly customer service, a rigorous quality control process, and a team that really cares.
