Currier Plastics Expands its Collegiate Co-Op Program
Auburn, NY Currier Plastics has continued to grow its Co-Op Program, adding a Penn State Senior to the most recent list of interns. The program has proved successful in the past with the transition of SUNY Oswego graduate Tom Maloney from intern to role of Business Development Manager.
Currier Plastics believes in the importance of education and encourages students from all ages to stay in school and learn about technology. This fact is evident by the annual school visits from the 2nd graders from Hermann Avenue Elementary School to the custom molder’s facility.” After the visits, the children write thank you letters and tell us what they enjoyed most about their visit to Currier Plastics. For some, it’s seeing the plastic bottles and lids being molded and for others, it’s the race car driven by Tim Currier, our Technical Buyer and a student from the first class of elementary students to visit some 18 years ago,” says Diane Pisciotti, Director of Talent at Currier Plastics.
“I do make regular visits to the colleges that have plastics degree programs. Tom Maloney is one of our success stories. After his graduation in 2009, Tom interned at Currier Plastics and spent time in each of our departments. It was a sales call with the Business Development team that helped Tom uncover a fit for his talents and goals. We hope all our interns work out as well as Tom,” says Pisciotti.
Currier Plastics is located in the heart of central New York and has been custom molding for a variety of industries such as plastic packaging, beauty and cosmetics, amenities, household consumables, electronic connectors and medical measuring devices since 1982.
