On Oct. 3, General Films, headquartered in Covington, Ohio, welcomed hundreds of people from the community and the plastics industry to commemorate two historic milestones: founder Roy Weikert’s 100th birthday and the company’s long-standing history.
Roy founded General Films in 1938. The company now serves a wide range of industries with custom extruded film solutions, bag-in-box systems and industrial packaging for a variety of industries including automotive, dairy and poultry.
Today, Roy is a vibrant 100 year old who still lives near Covington and enjoys a healthy and active lifestyle. For instance, Roy recently cut back from walking four miles daily to two miles a day. His secret to longevity: “Keep breathing. It’s helpful.”
