Steinwall Inc. of Coon Rapids, Minn., is PN's Processor of the Year for 2011. Owner Maureen Steinwall has become an expert on training and motivating employees to be better plastics workers and better people, too. She takes a holistic strategy to the custom molding business. For Maureen Steinwall, who bought the company from her father in 1985 and is the sole owner, it all boils down to people working together. She developed her own management style, balancing all stakeholder groups: the owner, customers, employees, communities and suppliers. The company pioneered video work instructions right at the press and now is replacing looped videos with iPads running PowerPoint presentations.
