One thing I've learned from coordinating the Processor of the Year award is that few custom plastics manufacturers become successful without changing. Customers, materials and technology are always changing.
Radius Packaging, the winner of the 2022 Plastics News Excellence Award for Industry and Public Service, is no longer a family-owned regional blow molder but maintains its strong commitment to the communities where it does business.
Coming into 2022, Processor of the Year winner Teel Plastics LLC had nearly doubled in size in just a few years. It had invested in injection molding and extrusion capacity to make a wide variety of products — most notably nasal swabs used to test for COVID-19.
Teel Plastics stood out as a leader in all of the Processor of the Year criteria, including industry and public service, customer relations, employee relations, financial performance and technological innovation.
