Jeco Plastic Products hosts U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly

Jeco Plastic Products-designer and manufacturer of plastic pallets and containers for the worldwide printing and automotive industries since 1973-recently hosted U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly for a tour of the Jeco facilities. Donnelly, one of two United States senators from Indiana, visited Jeco as a stop on his "Donnelly Days" program. "Donnelly Days" are an ongoing series of events where Donnelly works alongside employees in a variety of jobs and professions in communities across Indiana to gain a greater understanding of the issues most important to Indiana workers. During his visit to Jeco, Donnelly learned about Jeco efforts to export its precision plastic pallets to the worldwide printing and automotive industries, as well as the Jeco role in developing sophisticated plastic materials for aerospace and military applications.

Commenting about the event, Jeco CEO Craig Carson said: "Jeco Plastic Products is honored to have been chosen by Senator Donnelly to learn about our technology and its role in the global manufacturing process. We are grateful for the opportunity Jeco staff and production employees had to show our rotational molding and thermoforming capability to one of our nation's leaders."
