Khalid Fekni, Connectors Production Manager

For six months now, the connectors division of Technoflex has been under the responsibility of Khalid Fekni. A native of Clermont-Ferrand, this engineer and graduate of the ENIT (École Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tarbes) knows plastic injection like the back of his hand. He has been working in this field for more than 30 years! After a 10 year spell in the automotive sector at Plastics Vallée in Oyonnax, Khalid Fekni decided to move abroad to Luxembourg where he worked in food packaging. Now, Khalid has made the leap to pharmaceutical packaging: a specialist in high-speed molds, he is putting his plastic injection engineering skills to good use within Technoflex.

“The arrival of Khalid Fekni to direct our revamped connector teams represents a key asset for Technoflex. One of his main missions will be in particular to continue the development and modernization of our production equipment. His experience and maturity allows us to tackle upcoming projects with serenity” said Jean-François Soulé-Susbielle, Technoflex Industrial Director.

On a more personal level, Khalid did not choose to settle in the South-West by chance. “I am a simple person, I am a nature lover. My wife and I discovered the region several years ago. We loved this place immediately. Here there are the mountains, the beach and plastic injection! What more could I want?” he said with a smile. This enthusiastic cook takes full advantage of the assets offered by the Basque Country in this area. He also regularly engages in sporting activities such as running and mountain biking. The region is perfect for him!
