Injection molder Hoffer Plastics Corp. has made hiring and working with military veterans among its top priorities leading into 2021.
The South Elgin, Ill.-based company says it has successfully hired numerous veterans and is committed to supporting the veterans they employ throughout the processes they undertake before, during and after future deployments.
Current veteran employees at Hoffer include two active army reservists who have served a combined 43.5 years in the military. Keith Kuhns, an employee at Hoffer and member of the Marines and the National Guard, was deployed to Afghanistan in September 2019. After he returned home, Hoffer helped him get back to speed with any training he'd missed.
To thank the company, Kuhns presented a plaque to the members of Hoffer Plastics for their support throughout his deployment.
