Petoskey Plastics named finalist for Plastics News® Processor of the Year 2016

This award honors companies with superior achievement among plastics processors

Petoskey, MI: Petoskey Plastics was named one of four finalists for the Plastics News Processor of the Year Award for 2016, which is sponsored by the Plastics Industry Association. Petoskey Plastics is the only blown film company among the finalists. The winner will be announced in March.

A processor is defined as a manufacturer that forms finished plastics parts. For a private or public company or corporate operating division to qualify for the award, they must be engaged in North American plastics processing for at least the past five years. Candidates were then evaluated on the following criteria by members of the Plastics News’ editorial staff:

  • financial performance
  • quality
  • customer relations
  • employee relations
  • environmental performance
  • industry/public service
  • technological innovation

The accompanying article about the finalists states, “Given Petoskey’s expertise in recycled film products, the judges also were impressed by its technology. Making multi-layer blown film is hard enough, and producing that film with a high level of recycled plastics makes it that much more challenging.”

One customer reference remarked, “Petoskey has a long-term outlook, is a company that forges a partnership that helps solve problems, and it even helps suggest opportunities in new markets.”
