    Looking Ahead for Global Economic Trends

    Consistent with the positive trends in the overall U.S. economy, this year (like 2016 and 2017) is shaping up to be an excellent one for PFC and our customers across all industrial sectors. But, as the late economist Herbert Stein wisely observed, when it comes to global economic trends “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.”

    When it comes to gaining an understanding of economic trends and what we might do in response to them, we at PFC — like many of our fellow Vistage members — look first to ITR Economics, a small but global economic forecasting and consulting firm in Manchester, NH. We look to – and trust – them for one simple reason: for the 20+ years that we have been a client, their forecasts have been far more accurate than any others we know of. That accuracy, in part, may be a “no-nonsense New Hampshire thing;” they focus on the numbers while being notably disinterested in the political implications of those numbers or what might be trendy in the mainstream business press.

    Getting back to Herb Stein’s observation… while 2018 is shaping up to be an excellent year for business, it can’t and won’t go on forever.  ITR’s CEO Brian Beaulieu and his staff already see clear signs in the U.S. industrial sector that “portend slowing growth in the latter half of 2018 turning into mild contraction for 2019.”

    In response, ITR suggests that businesses build up their cash reserves now – “to mitigate the difficulties” they will face in 2019, and, to “invest for the accelerating growth trend expected in 2020.” In addition, as the economy turns downward, ITR recommends that firms consider “offering more price-sensitive products to appeal to cash-strapped firms” and that they market how their company’s products and services can help their customers reduce their costs.

    The Plastic Forming Company Introduces Custom Digitally Printed Labels

    For Immediate Release

    Woodbridge, CT, May 5, 2016.   The Plastic Forming Company, Inc. (PFC), the leading manufacturer of double-wall blow molded carrying cases for over 50 years, is pleased to announce the addition of in-house full color digital label printing.

    According to Andrew G. Amatrudo, PFC Vice President for Customer and Product Development, “The availability of full color, photo quality labels in small quantities is something new in our industry. PFC now has the capability to quickly and affordably reproduce customer logos, tag lines, registration marks, and more to help our customers with their overall branding strategies.”

    About The Plastic Forming Company

    Established in 1966 the Plastic Forming Company is a pioneer in the design and manufacture of blow molded products.  Since 1989, a significant portion of PFC has been owned by its employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). So when you call PFC, you’re talking to “one of the owners” – no matter who you speak with – and that makes a big difference.

    With an in-house design team, and manufacturing at both their Connecticut headquarters and Massillon, Ohio factory, PFC has the ability to offer their customers a wide variety of blow molding capabilities including the production of stock cases which can be customized to for most applications.  Whether you are looking for a custom molded interior, custom foam, fully custom case or a simple stock case – PFC Cases can meet your needs.

    All PFC products are made in the USA and are molded from tough, recyclable high-density polyethylene (HDPE).  No other material even comes close to HDPE when it comes to impact, resistance to solvents and oils, and durability.
