Detroit — Four companies — all of them custom injection molders — have been named finalists for Plastics News’ Processor of the Year Award: Diversifed Plastics Inc., Intertech Plastics Inc., MMI Engineered Solutions Inc. and PTI Solutions Inc.
Although all four finalists are injection molders, they are a diverse group.
Diversified Plastics runs a headquarters plant in Brooklyn Park, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis, and one in Vista, Calif. Intertech has two factories in Denver — one dedicated to clean room and white room production, the other for industrial. MMI operates three plants: at its headquarters in Saline, Mich., in Warren, Mich., and Monterrey, Mexico. PTI is in Macomb, Mich.
Candidates for Processor of the Year are judged based on seven criteria: financial performance, quality, customer relations, employee relations, environmental performance, industry/public service and technological innovation. Judges are members of the Plastics News editorial staff.
