In sports journalism, the best way to start a debate is to post a list of the greatest all-time players or teams. Lebron, Michael… or Bill Russell? Babe Ruth or Barry Bonds? 1972 Dolphins or 1985 Bears? Everyone's got an opinion.
To be in the conversation for the GOAT — yes, sports writers have an acronym for "greatest of all time" — you've got to win championships and MVP trophies. And that's where the Plastics News Processor of the Year award comes in.
In the North American plastics industry, the top award that a plastics processor can win is the Processor of the Year. Only 26 companies can make that claim, and they're clearly the cream of the crop. We honor just one each year.
OK, we did have a tie in 2002, but we've pledged to never let that happen again.
So, who's the best plastics processor of all time? Want to make an old-school argument for Nypro? Or do you favor the more recent winners? If your pick isn't in the conversation, it's time to nominate them for the 2021 Processor of the Year award.
