The Dyna-Purge Division of Shuman Plastics, Inc. announces the upcoming retirement of Joie Komarmi, our International Business Manager, effective in July 2011 after 35 years of service with the company.

"Joie's contributions to the Dyna-Purge Division and Shuman Plastics over her long career are almost immeasurable," says Ken Shuman, president. "We would like to thank her for being such a key figure at our company and ask all staff and distributors to join us in wishing her much happiness in her retirement."

Joie joined Shuman Plastics in 1975 as a buyer and seller of thermoplastic raw materials. In 1982, she helped the company launch Dyna-Purge purging compounds, starting as domestic sales manager, with responsibilities for international development as well.
