Director of Product Development at Romeo RIM Inc. in Romeo. Condeelis has more than 10 years of product design and development experience with consumer and durable goods, global agricultural, heavy truck, construction, and transit OEMs and suppliers. Romeo RIM was founded in 1982 with assets purchased from the Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. The company’s base product was known as the HELP (High Energy Level Polymer) energy absorbing bumper system, used on 90 percent of new buses built for the U.S. and Canadian transit markets. Romeo RIM has expanded its reaction injection molded (RIM) technology and adapted it for applications in the agricultural, heavy truck, and construction markets, including commercializing innovative composite technologies with the early adoption of dicylcopentadiene (DCPD), polyurethane long fiber injection (LFI), and now the latest development of high gloss, in-mold painted LFI. Condeelis led the development of this newest composite technology, that provides a class A finished part directly from the mold, eliminating the need for secondary operations. Only available from Romeo RIM in North America, this technology has fueled a double-digit increase in the company’s sales revenues. Condeelis holds four patents for Romeo RIM’s proprietary product line designs. Prior to joining Romeo RIM, he was a product engineer at Whirlpool’s KitchenAid small appliance division. Earlier, Condeelis was a program manager at Lionel, responsible for the design and development of many iconic products, and he played a lead role in the creation of Asian operations. During this time, he launched more than 200 unique product offerings both domestically and internationally. Condeelis received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Pennsylvania State University and an MBA with a concentration in international business from Baker College.
