President Collin “Buddy” Francis is Custom Silicone Technologies’ onsite chemist, with over twenty-five years of experience working in all phases of the Silicone Industry. In the early 1980’s, Buddy worked as a Chemist and Quality Assurance Manager for Dow Corning. While holding these titles, he serviced both the Laboratory and Production Departments, and became an expert in Silicone Compounding and Specifications Management. In the early 1990’s, Buddy joined Precision Silicones, a much smaller firm. He became the Chief Chemist and Quality Assurance Manager, where he was responsible for creating all formulations and ensuring product quality. Within a few years, due to its success, Precision Silicones was acquired by the German based industry giant, Wacker Silicones. Buddy became the Technical Director, where his duties included technical interface with customers and creating formulations for all compounds. After almost fifteen years with Wacker Silicones, Buddy accepted a position as the Operations Manager for Global Silicones, Inc.
After his tenure at Global Silicones, Buddy decided the time was right to form his own company, Custom Silicone Technologies LLC. His vast knowledge of the silicone industry enables CST to produce silicones of the highest quality and cost effectiveness, tailored to each customer’s requirements.
