Michael Stecyk, the Manager of Technical Services at our Kent Facility, has a broad background that ranges from elastomers and electrochemical diagnostic devices to surfactants and early drug discovery research. Michael’s research and development experience helps KEP design new products and offer customers innovative solutions to their business challenges.
“Every day I find that there’s something new to learn,” according to Michael. “What keeps me excited about work is being able to share any new knowledge to make my team’s job easier.” Michael earned his Bachelor of Science in chemistry from the University of Notre Dame and his Master of Science in chemistry from Case Western Reserve University. “Although working at KEP is my first foray into elastomers, I enjoy the technical challenge and look forward to contributing positively to the industry.”
In his personal time, Michael enjoys spending time with his wife, Alexandra. He also plays piano and rides his bike on park trails. As a chemist, Michael can’t help but turn his kitchen into a “home laboratory” – brewing beer, making mead and various fermented probiotic infusions, and baking bread of all kinds.
Thanks for all your hard work, Michael – we’re glad you’re a part of our team!
