When vision becomes reality! This week we delivered 2,500 Thankful Turkeys to Foodshare, our Feeding America food bank partner, to feed local families in need this Thanksgiving. This is Foodshare’s single biggest delivery with their goal of 20k turkeys for the holiday.

Impact Numbers:
- Foodshare is feeding 1,000+ people per day during COVID, many new to food insecurity
- In Connecticut, 1 and 8 people struggle with hunger and Foodshare is working tirelessly with other partners to change that
- In addition to our generous individual customers, 40 incredible companies (below) joined us as Partners in Giving this year. We encourage you to support our Partners in Giving through their services and sharing their good work.
- 2,500 Thankful Turkeys x ~10 people per turkey = 25,000 lives impacted

Thank you to our 2020 Business Partners in Giving!

A nice read for the new year, by our very own, Dan Damas.

As a neophyte driver, we learn to glance back in the review mirror. With experience, we are less conscious of review mirror use. However, If you've ever had a near-miss, you begin to understand why looking back is an important aspect of moving forward. But not at the expense of missing what’s in front of you.

As we usher in 2021, we’re grateful to have weathered such a devastating year and give our deepest condolences for all of the less fortunate. The challenges we faced taught lessons and provided experiences that have pushed us to be more adaptable, stronger, and resilient. We all spent time outside our comfort zones this past year. Unfortunately, we may never hear about every individual contribution of someone stepping up and making a difference, but without a doubt, we can honor all of those contributions and take with us the valuable insights and collective experiences into 2021.

Share what was learned, how we matured as a result, and apply the lessons to bolster a purpose. Embrace gratitude and express appreciation for one another- this is how good teams’ transition to great teams.

We can walk into 2021 with great confidence and enthusiasm knowing that our commitment to personal and professional growth will uphold the lessons learned in 2020. And just like we learned in drivers-ed, although we need to look back on occasion, we still need to continue moving forward by looking forward.

Compounding Resin Productions to Peak with Shale Gas Boom - Polymer Resources 11/15/2018

The plentiful supply of shale gas in North America has prompted the emergence of the US as an important center for worldwide petrochemical production. Thanks to the abundance of cheap shale gas as a feedstock, petrochemical production costs have gone down dramatically. The shale gas boom could potentially result in a surge in compounding resin production.

In a variety of manufacturing and industrial processes, there’s a need for
POLYURETHANE RESIN IMPREGNATION
– an easy process of filling porous material using polyurethane resins, as well as making it impervious. The process assists in addressing issues associated with microporosity in powder-metal parts, metal castings, plastic composites, electronic components, welds, and additional porous substrates – if gone untreated, it might result in poor quality of surface finish and pressure leakage. It brings an immediate necessity of an in-demand resin impregnation technology which will treat any kind of porous issues and improves their potential, while simultaneously ensuring performance that is free of leaks.
