Plastic is big business.

According to a 2020 report, the plastics industry here in the US accounted for $432 billion in shipments and over a million jobs.

As with any industry of that size, competitors constantly position themselves to pull ahead.

You make countless decisions daily. Each one impacts your business. But one topic that’s rarely top of mind unless there’s an issue is lubricants. They’re not all equal. The products and services you choose (or choose to ignore) will affect your bottom line. Pinched pennies today often lead to decreased profit tomorrow.

To remain competitive in the difficult plastics industry, we recommend focusing on impactful services and products.
