Our first issue back from our 25th Executive Forum is jam-packed.
First off, of course, we'd like to congratulate the 2022 Plastics News Processor of the Year, Teel Plastics. Read Editor Don Loepp's in-depth story about their post-pandemic successes and what helped them clinch the award.
Don also profiles our 2022 Sustained Excellence Award winner: Hoffer Plastics, which brought online proprietary closures to help bring sustained growth to the third-generation molder.
Profile stories of the other three Processor of the Year finalists, Medbio, Redline and Radius, are also featured in this issue.
Videos of all the finalists and excellence winner are now live, watch them here for free. The videos were filmed by Don Loepp and edited by Erin Sloan.
