TAMPA, FLA. — Three custom molders — injection molders Hoffer Plastics Corp. and Rodon Group LLC and DeKalb Molded Plastics Co., which does both structural foam and injection — are the finalists for Plastics News' 17th Processor of the Year Award.

A team of judges from the Plastics News editorial department in Akron picked the finalists.
