CLARKSTON, Mich. – Chase Plastic Services, Inc., a leading North American distributor of specialty, engineering and commodity thermoplastics, grew its revenue 22 percent in 2011 over 2010, and anticipates a similar increase in 2012. As a result of this rise in sales, the company added 13 new positions in 2011 and has hired 12 additional employees to date in 2012.
Chase Plastics also recently completed the first phase of its Clarkston, Mich. headquarters expansion with the addition of a 2,000-square-foot office space, which will house its application and technical development department. Phase two is expected to begin later this year and will consist of an expanded, state-of-the-art customer service center, as well as an employee training center and conference room.
“Since Chase Plastics was founded in 1992, our objective has remained the same: To help small- to medium-size plastic processors reach their full potential through ‘outrageous customer service’ and an unlimited offering of quality, cost-effective material options,” said Kevin Chase, president, Chase Plastics. “Twenty years later, our sustained growth shows that we’ve remained true to our mission and our customers, and we will continue to add personnel and capabilities in 2012 to support them every step of the way.”
In the past 12 months, Chase Plastics has aggressively reinforced its administrative team with the addition of human resources, credit, IT, customer service, accounting and supplier relations professionals. The additional staff solidifies the company’s internal structure and ensures that adequate support will be available to handle a projected increase in sales volume.
To boost the company’s ability to identify new products and suppliers and to negotiate best-possible customer pricing, Chase Plastics created the position of “new business development manager,” and also hired warehouse, sales and application and technical development team members.
