Scholarship, Fellowship, History
Building on our past to advance the future success of the plastics industry, the Plastics Pioneers Association is an organization of individuals who are persons of accomplishment in the industry. We support scholarships, educational programs, a history center, and more to engage the next generation of people in the world of plastics.
In 2023 we are celebrating our 75th anniversary, and we hope you will join us for the fun Diamond Anniversary events we have planned at our Spring and Fall meetings.
PPA will also be featuring historical stories here and in trade magazines, so be on the lookout for those. The first one is below. We look forward to continuing to serve the Plastics industry for many years to come!
Here is the first in a series of 75th Anniversary stories that will be posted. Our thanks to Steve & Roz Hershfield for the fun story about their weekend hosting the inventor of TEFLON, Dr. Roy Plunkett.
