Material Suppliers

Suppliers of plastic resins join with suppliers of additives, colorants and other materials in the Plastics Industry Association’s Material Suppliers Council. The Council advocates on behalf of its members at the local, state, federal and international levels and works to ensure that material suppliers can freely and safely innovate in a way that continues to expand the applications for plastic materials beyond what’s imaginable today.

  • Grow the marketplace for plastic materials and connect with industry decision makers.
  • Connect material suppliers with companies in other segments of the plastics supply chain and in a variety of end markets.
