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 2018 we celebrated our 70th anniversary, and we look forward to continuing to serve the Plastics industry for many years to come!
