Happy National Skilled Trades Day (May 5)

Today is National Skilled Trades Day (#SkilledTradesDay), a day we bring focus to all the men and women in skilled trades industries who help to build and maintain our country! In this past year, many of these people have been frontline workers and their work is essential to our communities. We thank each and every one of you for your dedication to your craft and your work.

At Plastifab we do a lot of work with industries that rely on skills trades, specifically the building and construction industry. We’re proud to be a manufacturer of parts and components for use in the equipment these important workers need to do their jobs.

Many extruded thermoplastics are used in the construction industry including HDPE, UHMW, Nylon, Acrylic, PVC, CPV, PVD, and polycarbonate. You’ll find them in all corners of commercial and residential buildings as piping, drainage, siding, insulation, and wrapping.

There are many advantages to using extruded thermoplastics in building and construction:

  • Thermoplastics are lightweight so parts don’t excessively add to the weight of the finished product or equipment.
  • Thermoplastics have good load-bearing ability.
  • Thermoplastics are easily formed into any shape necessary to ensure a secure fit.
  • Thermoplastics can withstand extreme outdoor conditions and weather.

We want to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to all skilled trades workers who are currently learning their craft or perfecting their skills on the job, and the experts who are now teaching the next group of trades.

Plastifab is proud to support you in the work you do for our communities.
