2019 Award Winners in Innovation and Educational Outreach

Not only do these awards recognize member organizations going above and beyond, they also give plastics companies the opportunity to learn and get inspiration from others in the industry.

MAPP Announces 2025 Vision

At the 2019 Benchmarking and Best Practices Conference, the MAPP Board revealed its 2025 Vision for MAPP.

The Vision: “MAPP’s retention and expansion of best-in-class processors will be accomplished by each member’s full ownership of its participation and involvement that will provide increasingly enhanced value for active contributors.”

This new vision elaborates and expands on a long-running theme in the organization: MAPP members sharing best practices, helping other members and working to make the industry better overall by working together.
