Evco Plastics gives NBC a look at a 'modern, growing' US manufacturer

Custom injection molder Evco Plastics Inc. is in the spotlight this week, the focus of a report on the NBC Nightly News.

NBC's Kevin Tibbles interviewed Dale Evans, president of the Deforest, Wis.-based company, for a segment titled "What It’s Like Inside a Modern, Growing U.S. Manufacturing Company." I'm embedding the report below.

The clip highlights how Evco is a successful U.S.-based manufacturer that also has significant operations abroad, specifically in Mexico and China.

It was pretty cool for me to see the report, since I've been to Evco several times (the first in the early 1990s). I've shot video there, too, when the company was for a finalist for, and then eventually won, the Plastics News Processor of the Year award.
