Megan Price – Warehouse Worker, Greensboro
Team member since:  May 2016

“Since I’ve been with Piedmont Plastics, I’ve been challenged in my work and that’s what make me love it! My co-workers and management team are very knowledgeable, social and caring which makes coming to work each day that much easier. I also enjoy getting the opportunity to work with our wonderful customers and providing service that is second to none, which is the Piedmont way.”

Thomas Rathburn – Warehouse Manager, Greenville
Team member since:  September 1998

“I have had numerous jobs through the years, and have worked for the local competitor off and on a few times, but I have never found a place that felt like home.  In late 1998, I applied with Piedmont, and after three interviews, and eventually a job offer, I decided that I wanted to try working for Piedmont.  Before then, I hadn't stayed anywhere longer than about three years, but that all changed when I came here, something was different.  There was a special family feel and a genuine concern for the employees, and it was obvious to me that Piedmont cares about retaining quality employees.  Now, almost 17 years later, I'm still here, and I still wake up each morning looking forward to coming to my job at Piedmont.  I assure you that no one is more amazed by that than me, and I look forward to many more years here with my family!”

Kelly D – Branch Administrator, Pompano Beach
Team member since:  September 2000

“For the past 18 years, I have had the pleasure of working at one of the most uniquely cultured places that I have ever encountered.  Coming to work almost seems like going home to my other family.  We grow, share laughs, and cry together.  It is not just in the location where I work, it is part of the Piedmont Plastics culture.  The environment is professional, yet relaxed enough to allow each member of the team to be themselves.  Piedmont holds each person on our team as a valued member.  We are continually offered ways to develop, both professionally as well as personally.  I would have to say that I feel very fortunate to be part of such a close-knit work family.”

"Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future. - John F. Kennedy"

I have had the honor of working my way up the ladder during my time here with Piedmont Plastics. I began working in various positions in our Films group before accepting a management position in the distribution side of the organization. 22 years in and I am still with the distribution group, in a sales capacity. Piedmont has treated me as a growing family member, openly and careful guiding my career development and advancement. I am happy and blessed to have joined the Piedmont team more than two decades ago. I am grateful for my past and present experience with Piedmont and looking forward to a long future of service and growth within such a great company.

Renee Eaton – Inside Sales Manager, La Mirada
Team member since:  June 1990

“I have been an employee of the Piedmont Plastics team for 25 years as an Inside Sales Representative. The greatest thing I can say about the Piedmont team is simply the word "Family".  Piedmont Plastics treats their employees with respect and kindness.  As an employee you are given every tool you could ask for or need to be successful.  Piedmont Plastics truly lives and breathes their core values.  It is a pleasure to work for a company that has such high values.”

Rae Wilson – Outside Sales Representative, Portland
Team member since:  September 2013

“I love working with Piedmont Plastics. They are a family owned company, and strive to maintain that personal touch with each of its’ employees. As an OSR, and really LEARNING how to effectively be a strong OSR as an employee with Piedmont, I have learned a lot! This is a company that encourages learning in every way possible. Actually to a certain extent, they insist upon it! The integrity is top-notch and they go over and beyond to address any concerns you might have. I highly recommend this company to any person who is looking to better themselves and are willing to work as a team; because that’s what we are, collectively – a team, a family.”

Marty Eakins – Branch Manager, Raleigh
Team member since:  August 2007

“I’ve been with Piedmont for eight years now and my only regret is that I didn’t start my career at Piedmont Plastics!  From a senior management team that constantly strives to be the best in class and really lives their value statement to the quality of people they hire, Piedmont is head and shoulders above the rest.  If you are looking for a company that is in business to do business, is well respected by their customers, vendors, and even their competition, then Piedmont Plastics is the place to be.”

Bert Hagy – Branch Manager, Knoxville
Team member since:  December 1995

“I have been a part of the Piedmont family for almost 20 years.  I am very proud to be part of this organization. It is a privilege to have been here this long and get up each day and be excited about what we do! I love our company, our industry, and the people I am blessed to work with each day. I am excited about the direction of our company and look forward to many more years on the team and in the Piedmont family!”
