Meet Chairman of the Board, Marlene Smith.
Marlene Smith found herself in the driver's seat at PPC shortly after the death of her late husband in 1975. At the time, the 35-person company was experiencing hardship and declining sales. Smith pulled the company up by its bootstraps through good business sense, hard work, and inspiring employees to exceed customer expectations. Today, Plastic Products Co. is one of North America's largest molders.
In 2013, Marlene completed the company's transition from a certified, woman owned business into a 100% employee owned company.
