Taking Home The Hardware

Redwood Plastics and Rubber was rewarded richly with individual and team honors at the recent IAPD (International Association of Plastics Distribution) convention in Chicago this past week. As a team we brought home the Education Circle of Champions Gold Award once again! Having our employees do their work with the firm foundation of IAPD education is a priority for our company and we will continue to encourage educational growth. Our VP of Marketing, Angela Rodenburgh, brought home the Pacesetter Award. This award is given each year to the IAPD member who takes charge, volunteers his or her time, in moving the IAPD forward as well as the plastics industry as whole. Angela has been in the forefront for years working on plastics as a career for women, on how new regulation affects the industry, and has been on several committees within the IAPD.

Secondly, Matt Blom also in our marketing department was the fourth person inducted into the “Honor Society”. This society is for individuals who have gone above and beyond in their pursuit of being plastic experts and have personally embraced the educational opportunities the IAPD affords. Matt had completed all other available courses when he offered to be the “guinea pig” to take the brand new course “Excellence In Sales Level II”. This test took over a year to complete and required a 100% score to pass.

Congratulations to both members of our Marketing team and all our employees for embracing education!
