ISO Poly Films, Inc. – a member of the Sigma Plastics Group and a leading manufacturer of multi-layer plastic films – is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. President and founder Jon McClure established the manufacturing company to bring a new level of quality and service to the film industry. The company has experienced significant growth and success, which has helped propel ISO Poly to the top of the industry.
This anniversary celebration is marked by recognition with the 2013 South Carolina Excellence Award by the Small Business Institute for Excellence in Commerce (SBIEC). The SBIEC conducts industry research and surveys to identify companies that have achieved demonstrable success in their local business environment and industry category. ISO Poly is recognized as having enhanced the commitment and contribution of small businesses through service to its customers and community
and consistently demonstrated a high regard for upholding business ethics and company values.
“Our sustained success through industry and economic ups and downs is a reflection of our team’s the dedication to exceptional quality,” says ISO Poly Founder and President Jon McClure. “I started the company to bring a new level of quality and customer service to the film industry, and our focus has always been on improving processes and developing films that help our customers become successful. I’m proud of the accomplishments we’ve made over the past 15 years, and honored that
our team’s outstanding dedication to work values has been recognized with the South Carolina Excellence Award,” he added.
ISO Poly Films began operations at its manufacturing plant in Gray Court, S.C. in 1998 with 16 employees. The company turned a profit in its third month of operations and generated $3 million in sales in its first year in business. Sales have steadily increased over the years, and the company is expected to exceed $100 million in sales this year, with employment reaching 150.
Through multiple expansions, the company now operates a 235,000-square-foot facility in Gray Court, S.C. and a 50,000-square-foot facility in Vancouver, Wash. and produces more than 150 million pounds of plastic films each year. ISO Poly’s films are used for a variety of packaging and protective film applications, including food and beverage products (such as cheese and beverage pouches and snack bags), consumer electronics, pharmaceutical products, medical devices and industrial products.
“We are pleased with ISO Poly Films’ growth and success and have enjoyed our partnership since 2009,” says Alfred Teo, chairman and CEO of the Sigma Plastics Group. “With its leadership team and dedicated employees, ISO Poly will continue to grow and meet a demand for its multi-layer, highbarrier specialty films,” he added.
Some lessons can be hard to learn, and COVID-19 has been one tough teacher when it comes to supply chains. We shed some light on what this taskmaster has taught us in the November issue of Flexible Packaging as well as how printers can use less ink without sacrificing quality, how advances in technology are opening up new markets for flexible, and showing you a brand that’s dear to our hearts with its flippancy. There’s more than that, though, but you’ll have to dive in to see it!
