Family-owned and -operated Colors for Plastics Inc. is a plastics compounder based in Elk Grove Village, Ill., that stresses a "customer-centric team mentality."
"Our team has provided a comprehensive line of colorants and additives to the plastic industry for 50 years … [and] continuous efforts to offer competitive total rewards, leadership, communication and training to support the family we consider our team. We promote from within as much as possible to encourage long-term growth opportunities for everyone in the organization," the company said.
Employees said they appreciate the family culture, fun work environment, flexibility, growth opportunities and open-door policy. Colors for Plastics said its investment in its team is what separates it from the competition.
"Building relationships with customers and suppliers is as important to the Colors team as is building a strong family network within the organization. They do this by creating an environment where voices are heard, opportunities are given and you can openly talk with your co-workers, managers and ownership to get assistance or advice with tasks, personal problems or life's endless challenges," the company said.
