Hoffer Plastics honored for community involvement
Hoffer Plastics Corp. will be honored for its long record of community involvement on Nov. 30, when the company will receive the 2010 Illinois Large Family Business of the Year Award from Loyola University's Family Business Center. The South Elgin, Ill.-based custom injection molder also will receive the center's Community Service Award. The Family Business of the Year award recognizes exceptional Illinois-based family-owned businesses that demonstrate a strong commitment to business development, family and the community. Hoffer Plastics was founded in 1953 by Robert A. and Helen C. Hoffer, and today the company's management includes second- and third-generation family members. The founders set up a charitable arm, the Hoffer Foundation, in 1966. Since then, the foundation has donated millions to charitable, religious, scientific, industry and educational organizations, including funds for computer labs, software and scholarships to local high schools and universities. "Winners of the awards have demonstrated positive family/business linkage, multi-generational family business involvement, contributions to industry and community and innovative business practices and strategies," said Andrew Kyte, executive director of the Family Business Center of Loyola. "Hoffer Plastics certainly embodies those qualities." "We are honored to receive these wonderful awards," said William Hoffer, president of Hoffer Plastics. "Our family and our employees have always been committed to providing our customers with outstanding quality products and services and this recognition is a tribute to everyone in our business family." Congratulations to Hoffer Plastics and its employees.
