Tessy Plastics today named Stafford Frearson as the medtech supplier’s new president with former President Roland Beck becoming CEO.

Frearson joined the contract manufacturer in 1997 and was promoted to his most recent role, VP of engineering, in 2018. He’s now responsible for day-to-day business operations across the plastics company’s 13 locations in the U.S. and China.

Beck is the owner of Skaneateles, New York-based Tessy. His father, Henry Beck, was one of the family business’s co-founders in 1973.

The younger Beck became president in 2002, and under his leadership annual revenue has grown to more than $500 million and expanded its footprint to eight facilities in Central New York; one in Erie, Pennsylvania, one in Meadville, Pennsylvania; and two in Shanghai, China.
