January 16, 2018 – Charlotte, NC – 2018 marks the 50th anniversary for Piedmont Plastics®, the premier North American distributor and converter of plastic sheet, rod, tube, and film products.
Founded on the fundamentals of providing customers with the quick delivery of top-quality, name brand products and a solution based mentality, the company opened its doors in 1968 with one location and five employees. Through the years, those fundamentals haven’t changed. With over 40 convenient branch distribution centers located throughout North America, two film conversion centers, and a state-of-the-art thermoforming facility, the company now employs over 600 people.
“The success of any organization is, in large measure, dependent on the quality and commitment of its employees. Piedmont has, from the start, been fortunate to have had and continues to have dedicated, talented, and hard-working people, throughout the company. Without those employees, we could not have grown profitably, as a private company, from our initial Charlotte location, to what is now 46 branches and conversion centers in North America. It has been my good fortune to have been part of this company for 43 plus years.” – Hank Booth, Chief Executive Officer
