Welcoming Peel Plastics to the Community of Practice

 We are excited to announce Peel Plastics Products Ltd. as the newest member of the Community of Practice on Engineering Leadership (CoP). In their own words: “Peel Plastic Products Ltd. has been a proud recognized leader in flexible packaging solutions and process innovation for over 40 years.”

Founded in 1978 in Brampton, Ontario, Peel Plastics has evolved into a company that creates highly customized packaging for the lawn & garden, pet food, and health & wellness markets. Numbering over 350 employees, Peel opened a second facility in Brampton in 2016 to keep up with customer demand and team growth.

Mike Martin, Vice-President of Engineering & Technology, had the following to say on this new partnership with Troost ILead:

“For many years Peel Plastics, through its founder Bill Troost, has been actively supporting engineering leadership education within the Faculty of Applied Science at U of T.  Joining the CoP is another way for Peel Plastics to further increase, widen and evolve their support and commitment towards the Troost ILead initiatives.  Our experience directly with students is always energizing and rewarding at all levels within Peel Plastics.”

A warm welcome to Peel Plastics. We look forward to working with you to advance our common cause: engineers leading change to build a better world.
