EPS Fall Conference 2018 – Production, Technology & Operations (PTO) Recap!

We have a EPS Fall Conference 2018 recap! Last week we attended the Production, Technology & Operations (PTO) – EPS Fall Conference 2018 in Las Vegas. Providing an overview for the event on behalf of Plymouth Foam was attendee Mark Schuh, Vice President/General Manager.


“The PTO Conference was a success and had record attendance this year again,” said Schuh. “This year’s conference had a large focus on recruitment, retention and motivation”. Keynote speaker, Gene Marks, kicked off the conference with the presentation, “Your People: Where To Find Them, What To Pay Them And How To Keep Them Motivated.” Marks shared trends on this topic and how it’s a current issue throughout the country.


A few hot topics shared at the conference included recycling and best practices in the EPS Industry. In addition, Automation was a buzz word at the conference (more to come, stay tuned!), As usual, the networking opportunities were plentiful.


“We can’t wait to share trends and the discussions we had at the conference with our Plymouth Foam team members; it’s such a great opportunity for our organization,” noted Schuh.


We are already looking forward to next year’s PTO Conference and the upcoming EPS EXPO that we regularly attend in Spring!
