One German among the Inductees

On Sunday, May 6, plastics industry professionals will come together to celebrate the contributions of 10 well-known and respected plastics industry leaders who will be inducted into the 2018 Plastics Hall of Fame. On January 4 the Plastics Academy announced the 10 new members:

  • David Cornell, DD Cornell Associates, LLC

  • Donald Graham, Graham Capital Company
  • Steve Maguire, Maguire Products, Inc.
  • Max McDaniel, Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. LLD
  • Martin Stark, Bekum America Corporation
  • Hideo Tanaka, Toshiba Machine Co.

“These new inductees proudly represent the length and breadth of our great industry with a wealth of accomplishments in polymer science, engineering, manufacturing, equipment design and business management,” said Plastics Academy President Jay Gardiner. “Each individual has been elected by the living members after a lengthy screening process, which this year began with a record number of nominations.”

The Plastics Hall of Fame was founded in 1972 by Editor-in-Chief Sid Gross in cooperation between Modern Plastics Magazine and Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI), now Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS). Separate ceremonies for living and posthumous inductees are held every three years.

The Plastics Academy serves as the administrator of the Hall of Fame and memorializes the industry tradition through honoring outstanding individuals by inducting them into the Plastics Hall of Fame. Its Board of Directors serves as the screening committee for the nominations, which are then sent to the living Hall of Fame members for their selection of the inductees.
