Scott Howard

CEO

Scott has spent his entire career in the plastics industry.  He joined specialty adhesive film producer Bemis Associates in 1985 and enjoyed 30 years of growth with the business as Quality Manager, Director of Product Development and Chief Operating Officer. Scott was fortunate to be part of the team that transformed Bemis from a small family firm to  global leader in adhesive films.  The growth was largely from developing unique, highly engineered thermoplastic  for new markets and applications.  Scott has a passion for bringing new ideas and products to market. Bemis acquired specialty compound producer PolyVisions in 2013.  Since then Scott has lead the company in the development of high recycled content materials for use in durable goods applications.  PolyVisions is at the forefront of the effort to "re-value" plastics.
