David Rivera

David has been in coatings-related industries for 20+ years. With a degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as a foundation, he has worked in every phase of product development. From his years as a bench chemist/formulator for one of the world’s leading specialty chemical companies, Evonik Industries, to his years running its pilot plant operations, he has filled the technology gap between a successfully demonstrated research concept and its practical implementation in a production facility.

David currently utilizes his years of formulary and technical experience to seek new opportunities for the packaging industry and to drive projects that are turning the plastics industry on its head. He partners with and assists clients by making recommendations from ACC’s expansive line of topical coatings as well as by developing novel, topical solutions that meet the needs of an ever-evolving market while ultimately gaining the attention of the end-user.
