Stephen D. Hasselbach

Chief Executive Officer

At a young age, Stephen Hasselbach found his talent and joy to be working with his hands, designing and creating things from scratch. His career began in his father’s hobby shop during his high school years, making canopies for model airplanes. His father’s business had started small, supplying model airplane kits to model enthusiasts. These model airplanes eventually made their way to the US military, supplying replicas of military aircraft for spotter training, as well as for display in military offices. Eventually, this evolved into creating plastic parts for the planes and plastic packaging for all types of components.

Steve watched his father’s business grow from the ground up. Now, he is the CEO of the company and the primary hand in continuing this growth. With Steve’s leadership, the company took a strong turn, now mainly supplying the medical and cosmetic industries. Steve has won awards for excellence in medical packaging, Thermoformer of the Year in 2004 by the Society of Plastics Engineers’ Thermoforming Division, among many other accolades. He has undoubtedly taken a part in developing the thermoforming process into what it is today.

Even as the CEO of CMI, Steve continues to play an essential role in the development phase for packaging components for his company. During the last few years, the company has been experiencing amazing growth in the business. The Hasselbach family is greatly anticipating CMI’s further growth and success in their new state-of-the-art thermoforming facility in Ayden, NC.
