Greg Pracy

Greg is the General Manager of W&S Plastics in Sydney.

After studying Mechanical Engineering at the Institute of Technology Sydney Greg entered the plastics industry where he has remained throughout his career. In 2005/06 he studied business management at the Australian Graduate School of Management. Greg never misses an opportunity to improve his skills and has attended courses relevant to his career regularly.

He joined his family business in 1987 and in time, took it over. Greg built and led a team of talented people who successfully developed a fully automated “lights out” factory management and control system which monitored and controlled injection moulding machines and ancillary process equipment allowing totally unmanned overnight operation of the factory. Greg’s experience and passion for the industry can be seen in everything that he puts his hand to.

Having sold the family business to W&S Plastics in 2011 he stayed with the business on a short term contract and managed a seamless integration of the two. His skills were quickly recognised and he was offered the role of General Manager which he continues in today.

Greg is responsible for the efficient and profitable operations of the W&S plants in both Sydney Australia and Kulai Malaysia and loves to be directly involved with customers to ensure that they are receiving the high quality of product and service that he expects from the business. He is passionate about continuous improvement and enjoys assisting the team with automation projects when time allows.

Greg has held a position as a Counsellor on the NSW Council of the Australian Industry Group and enjoys being engaged in several other industry bodies and advisory groups.
