Plastics Industry Association Drops SPI, Announces New Way Forward

SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association announces its new name, Plastics Industry Association, PLASTICS for short, and unveiled a new Web site, demonstrating that as the plastics industry grows and evolves, so too does the association. PLASTICS, the association’s new identity, builds upon nearly 80 years of a strong history of fostering collaboration among the entire plastics supply chain. “To continue to drive the industry forward for decades to come, our national board made a decision to evolve our purpose-driven organization,” said William R. Carteaux, PLASTICS’ president and CEO. “We’re not a society; we’re an association that helps to shape the future of the industry. Our new identity as the Plastics Industry Association reflects the way forward.”

PLASTICS unveiled a new logo, which represents the six facets of the plastics industry supply chain, including brand owners, equipment manufacturers, material suppliers, moldmakers, processors and recyclers. Moving forward, the plastics industry is looking to grow and support sustainability and find ways to make recycling easier, hence the association also added its new, and first-ever tagline: “Better Industry. Better World.”

“Our member-driven organization will continue to help the industry grow while promoting new technology through our trade shows and conferences,” said Jim Murphy, chair of PLASTICS’ Board of Directors and president and CEO of Davis Standard, LLC. “At the same time, we’re going to work to evolve the way people think about plastics.”
