It's been a very long time since the Plastics Hall of Fame announced its list of honorees for 2021.
When the 10 new members were named in December 2020, everyone still expected NPE to happen in May 2021, with an induction ceremony set for NPE show week.
But when the Plastics Industry Association was forced to cancel because of COVID-19, the Hall of Fame ceremony was in limbo. After a few attempts to host it later in 2021, the ceremony is finally set to take place May 2 in Chicago.
As a reminder, the new Hall of Fame members are Yoshiharu Inaba, Mayumi Kotani, Salvatore Monte, Peter Neumann, Donald Paulson, Joseph Prischak, Ulrich Reifenhauser, Wylie Royce, Suresh Shah and Vince Witherup.
