A St. Cloud, Minn., plastic fabricating company has a new name.

After more than 30 years as Goldleaf Plastics, the company has rebranded itself as Aubright.

Building on the periodic table symbol for gold – Au – the new name reflects the company’s ongoing evolution of the plastic fabricator.

“For more than 30 years, partnerships have been everything to us,” founder and CEO Sandy Berling said in a statement. “We saw an opportunity to look forward toward the future and make a bold promise to our customers. We’re committed to setting the gold standard in plastic fabrication, day in and day out.”

Aubright is involved in the “plastic fabrication of custom components, products and display fixtures for the retail/visual merchandising, manufacturing (OEM) and powersports markets,” the company said.

The company’s new website is www.aubright.net.
