Milestones in Our History
Greensboro – in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina -- was an ideal location for Bright Plastics and the needs of its manufacturing operation. With access to two major interstate highways [A third would open 20 years later.], proximity to an international airport and a pool of eager employees ready to learn a new trade due to dwindling jobs in the furniture, textile and tobacco industries – the company was well-supported. The area also offered a selection of shipping companies to bring in raw materials and take out finished goods. There was a healthy railway system for the transportation of materials to and from the facility. [By 2013, the company would have their own rail system with rail cars delivering materials to Bright's back door.]
