Curbell Plastics was awarded the Gold Environmental Excellence Award making it the eighth consecutive year they have received Gold in this category. The award honors responsible environmental practices of IAPD members. Curbell has been at the forefront for years implementing sustainable strategies including recycling, energy conservation, community outreach, and employee engagement programs, led by Mark Shriver, Curbell’s Director of Safety & Environmental Affairs.

Gold Environmental Impact Award 

With the help of Mark Shriver and his team, Dan Kane, Business Manager III, was recognized with the Gold Environmental Impact Award for a custom recycling solution they developed for a longtime fabrication partner of the Virginia location. This creative solution not only gained back valuable floor space in the plant for the fabricator, but diverted 69,000 pounds of ribbon-like polypropylene plastic scrap from landfill that was previously deemed unrecyclable. “This is just the beginning”, said Kane, “now I’m thinking about other customers with a lot of waste and wondering, can we take this idea and create something that will work for them?”.

Gold Education Circle of Champions Award 

For the seventh year Curbell Plastics received the Gold Education Circle of Champions award, recognizing the company for their participation in IAPD educational events and their extensive employee training programs. The training and development team led by Training Manager Ashley Riley, exemplifies the company’s core value of learning to help create the plastics leaders of tomorrow.

Silver Marketing Excellence Award

Curbell’s in-house marketing team led by Sherrie Bloom, Director of Marketing, was honored with the Silver Marketing Excellence award for the second year in a row. The award recognizes innovative and exemplary marketing initiatives by IAPD members, and this seasoned group, continues to promote the benefits of performance plastics through integrated marketing campaigns, email programs, content marketing, social media, public relations, and video creation.
