Plastic Suppliers, a manufacturer of film products based in Columbus, OH, USA, is one of 29 Ohio companies to be recognized for its efforts in exporting Ohio-made products, while growing Ohio jobs in relation to increased exportation. Ohio’s Governor Bob Taft recognized the companies and organizations with the Governor’s Excellence in Exporting Award (“E” Award) in late June.
Established in 1985, the “E” Award recognizes Ohio companies that have increased sales volume through exports, increased Ohio-based employment as a direct result of export activity, or developed and implemented a strategy to expand international sales. “To succeed in today’s global economy, Ohio businesses must look beyond our nation’s borders and explore opportunities in foreign markets,” Taft says. “These companies are growing and creating jobs here in Ohio as a result of aggressively selling their products throughout the world.”
Plastic Suppliers manufactures plastic film and sheet and exports the substrates through five domestic and two European distribution branches. The company’s newest product is EarthFirst PLA film, an environmentally friendly plastic made from corn.
