The Plastics Group of America
United States of America
Robert "Bob" Lebeaux formed The Plastics Group of America (TPG) in 1973 as a one-man business that focused on buying and reselling plastic scrap. Since then, TPG has gone through quite an evolution. Today, the Plastics Group is now a state-of-the-art, ISO-registered, plastics compounding company with over 45 employees working at its corporate offices and production facility located in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. The company recently completed the restoration of the historic Jules Desurmont Mill Complex, converting the 400,000+ sq. ft. building into much-needed manufacturing and storage space for TPG. In 2013, Bob and his company celebrated their 40th business anniversary, having grown in size as well as stature, succeeding in the rapidly changing plastics industry by “Doing the Needful” in meeting every challenge faced along the way. “I attribute much of our corporate success to being part of a creative, hard-working team of talented individuals – working closely together has enabled us to both set and achieve substantive goals for corporate growth and product development. At the heart of our success is providing unparalleled customer service to each and every client we serve. Our customers know that they can depend on us to provide them with quality products, attentive service, and timely delivery – these deliverables are the foundation upon which our business is built. We care about their needs and do whatever it takes to provide them with exactly the solution they are looking for. It is why TPG maintains ISO certification, PPAP accreditation and Tier 1 provider recognitions.” Whether enhancing their proprietary Polifil® resins for national distribution, making their corporate website a reliable source for product and industry information, or expanding the company’s custom compounding, toll processing or recycling services, Bob and his staff are always looking at continuous process and product improvement. He is especially proud of the fact that TPG has earned SHARP recognition for worker safety for 19 consecutive years, further underscoring the company’s commitment to our employees and ultimately, to their families, for continuous on-the-job safety. Bob lives in Lincoln, RI with his wife Marti and their three dogs, having raised three wonderful children - Seth, Heidi and Jake.
