About Profile Services

Resources at Profile Services

Profile Services is a sole-practitioner enterprise, with a twist ... we get by with a little help from our friends.

Some projects are easily and effectively handled by a single resource. Others are successful because of teamwork. Profile Services has only one permanent resource, but there is still a substantial team at work.

Blow Mold Tooling (1972) Ltd. and Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. were great educations for Jim Sykes. There, he learned the value of knowledgeable co-workers and the synergy of teamwork. Synergy was a popular buzz word in the '90s, but it accurately describes the accomplishments of the great groups he worked with at these companies and in the broader industry. Teamwork, when the synergy flows, produces results greater than the combination of the individual contributions.

Jim worked with talented technical and non-technical people within these companies, with clients, with suppliers and with competitors. Designers and engineers in various fields, master mold makers and machinists, metrologists, CAE specialists, project managers, manufacturing engineers and processing technicians, marketing and finance ... the resources needed to get things done right. His work with the International Society of Beverage Technologists (ISBT) and the Closure Manufacturers' Association (CMA) allowed him to work with talented people in a great cross-section of companies and industries around the globe. Jim's reputation for working on challenging and intriguing projects, resolving industry issues and cross-pollenation of technologies and ideas have built a network of colleagues ready for the next challenge.

Since starting Profile Services in 2005, Jim Sykes has continued to work with his growing network of colleagues and collaborative resources, brainstorming, reviewing, challenging perceptions, resolving their issues and those of Profile Services' clients.
