Leroy Boser.
Leroy Boser.

The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Thermoforming Division has presented its Lifetime Achievement Award to Leroy (Lee) Boser, an expert in thermoforming technology who worked for Spartech and other companies for nearly four decades and authored two well-known thermoforming manuals.

The Division’s Executive Committee presented the award to him on September 10, during SPE’s Thermoforming Awards Dinner at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Mr. Boser began his career in 1967 as a plant supervisor with Uniroyal. After 11 years, he left to become General Manager at Riblet Plastics, where he worked for six years until returning to Uniroyal in 1985. Fifteen years later, Uniroyal’s sheet business was acquired by Spartech Corporation, and Lee became the Chief Sales Engineer until he retired in 2005. He now serves as a thermoforming engineer consultant to many of Spartech’s customers. 

Throughout his career, Lee Boser has traveled around the world to help set up thermoforming operations and troubleshoot customer challenges in the U.S., Canada, England, Scotland, Germany, Romania, Australia, and China. 

Mr. Boser played an instrumental role in the introduction of Spartech’s Royalite and Royalex materials. Royalite sheet is an engineered thermoplastic alloy designed for aviation, mass transit, medical and building and construction applications and meets stringent flame and smoke requirements. Royalex contains a post-foaming technology which was used extensively in the manufacture of high-end canoes.  

Lee Boser has published two notable thermoforming manuals: Pressure Forming Manual in the early 1990s and Thermoforming Manual and Troubleshooting Guide a decade later.

I had the privilege of seeing Lee Boser in action during my resin-selling days, and I was always amazed at how he could show a customer how to troubleshoot an issue, and do it in a way where the customer was grateful,” said Eric Short, SPE Thermoforming Division Chair.
