Patrick (Pat) Silkey is the Inside Sales Manager for the Syracuse, NY location. He oversees all aspects of inside sales, supports the office team, and maintains accounts he’s nurtured for over 30 years. “Plastics always has something new for you to learn, experience, or share,” Pat said. “I enjoy working on the challenges my customers bring to me. The loyalty I’m able to provide them has created long lasting relationships and that’s been really rewarding.”
Outside the office he’s a camper, enjoys kayaking, and is a dedicated “Smoker” – smoking meats, fish, and more. “I enjoy barbequing in general,” he chuckled, “I don’t have any favorites. I just enjoy playing.” Pat is also a Son in the American Legion and helps with many aspects within the organization, including organizing their annual Syracuse BBQ smoker event.
