Proprietary closures bring sustained growth to Hoffer Plastics
South Elgin, Ill. — The seed for Hoffer Plastics Corp.’s recent growth was planted more than a decade ago — even before the company won the Plastics News Processor of the Year award in 2012 — according to Alex Hoffer.
“To be able to tell the whole story, we have to go back to a conference room in 2009, when we were doing strategic planning, because we recognized at the time that we had a customer — and they’re still one of our largest customers, and we love them dearly — that too much of our business was coming from,” Alex Hoffer said.
“So the question that the group asked was, ‘What happens if they went away?'”
