Currier Plastics Recognized for Supporting Education
Auburn, NY Currier Plastics strongly supports education in the Finger Lakes manufacturing community and has received numerous commendations.
Earlier in the year, Currier Plastics was recognized as the driving force behind the development of the plastics degree program at Cayuga Community College (CCC). John Currier, President, said it is important to fulfill his father Ray Currier’s legacy of leading and supporting local manufacturing.
In June 2016, Partners for Education and Business presented the Sector Strategy Award to Currier Plastics during their annual luncheon at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York. The award was presented as a follow up to the Manufacturing Career Day held in October 2015 which was co-hosted by Currier Plastics and Lockheed Martin. Nearly 70% of the 359 students that were surveyed said they would consider a career in manufacturing.
Other recent recognition includes the Cooperative Education Program Appreciation Award presented to Currier Plastics by the Auburn Enlarged City School District. Through the program, Currier Plastics employed high school senior Ryann Gable who performed administrative and accounting tasks at Currier Plastics. At the ceremony held in June, Ryann gave a presentation on the history of Currier Plastics, the products it manufactures and her intern experience. Lindsay Cronkright, Accounting Manager for Currier Plastics, attended the event so that she could congratulate Ryann and accept the award for “contributions toward the continued success of the Auburn High School Cooperative Education Program and the students it serves.”
Currier Plastics personnel hope to inspire other manufacturers to support education initiatives and grow the manufacturing workforce.
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.
