Last week, stories of thankfulness were almost as abundant as pumpkin pie and turkey stuffing - from heartwarming national news accounts of reasons to give thanks, to personal daily posts of appreciation on Facebook, to Uncle Fred’s stories around the Thanksgiving table – and this year, even from Plastics News.
In Don Loepp’s recent article “Counting blessings: Thanks all around” he highlights a few things that the plastics industry has to be thankful for this year. These include the growth of the plastic industry (plastics is outpacing the overall manufacturing sector in value of goods shipped), investments in new resin capacity being driven by the rapidly expanding shale gas sector and the growing number of trade groups and researchers working to do something about marine litter.
This made us think, what are we thankful for at TEQ? Which is a question that is very easy to answer. The TEQ team.
This includes the highly-trained team of “TEQnologists” here in Huntley, IL, who are some of the best in the country when it comes to eliciting faster processing speeds, superior quality and exceptional process control from high-end machinery like the numerous Kiefel thermoform machines in our factories.
It includes our trained, professional sales team that works with our customers from concept to completion, always available to answer any issue that may arise, resolve them as soon as possible and ensure that projects keep moving and get delivered on time – every time.
It also encompasses our network of strategic partners - some of the best names in the industry (such as Spartan Design Group and Belco Packaging Systems), who are core to our ability to provide our customers new services and higher quality products.
And last, but certainly not least, it includes our parent company, Esco Technologies who provides us with the financial support we need to continue to provide customers with innovative solutions - from design and engineering, through to state-of-the-art technology, market leading thermoforming and turnkey supply chain solutions.
What about you? What are you thankful for this holiday season?
