Award Highlights Strong Employee Engagement and Workplace Opportunities

CLINTON, Tenn., February 26, 2016 – Techmer PM, LLC (Twitter: @techmerpm), a materials design company, is being recognized for the second time as one of the “Best Places to Work” by Plastics News’ annual awards program. Techmer PM ranked No. 13 among U.S. and Canadian companies on the 2016 list, which is determined by a mix of employee and employer feedback.

The survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the plastics industry, benefitting the economy, workforce, and businesses in the U.S. and Canada. The list is made up of 15 companies.

“It is an incredible honor to be on Plastic News’ distinguished ‘Best Places to Work’ list,” said Ryan Howley, president of Techmer PM. “We are a family-run business, and have always made it a priority to provide a vibrant, creative work environment in which our team members feel challenged, secure, and proud of the company. Making sure our employees are connected and engaged is essential to our corporate mission and long-term success.”

Techmer PM has more than 600 employees—including staff from its wholly owned subsidiary, Techmer ES—spread across seven U.S. production facilities. The company also operates offices internationally in São Paulo, Brazil and Cologne, Germany.

Employee engagement and satisfaction surveys account for 75 percent of the scoring. The results are analyzed and categorized based on: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training, development, and resources; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.

The employer questionnaire, which makes up 25 percent of the grading, captures information about company policies, practices, and demographics.

Techmer PM was previously on the list in 2014, the first year the rankings were complied. Plastics News unveiled the latest rankings on February 16 at its annual executive forum at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club in Florida. Rachel Irons, site human resources manager, Techmer PM, attended the award ceremony on behalf of Techmer PM.

All of the survey findings were collected and assessed by Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based Best Companies Group. The actual rankings will be published on March 21 by Plastics News. For more information, visit
