I like to highlight plastics companies that win significant local awards, and here's one that happens to be very local for me: Polymer Packaging Inc. in North Canton, Ohio, was named Stark County Business of the Year by the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce, according to this story in the Akron Beacon Journal. Criteria for this award include "excellence in employment growth, operations expansion, capital investments, customer service, innovation, community service and responsiveness to challenge," according to the story. The interesting thing I learned about Polymer Packaging: last year it helped develop a polyethylene pouch that can filter water, making it potable for use in disaster relief and military operations. Last year we wrote about the company's plans to build a new plant in Massillon, Ohio. Congratulations!
Honoring the best
