Tex Trude

 

Before Tex-Trude can produce quality products, we believe that we must hire quality employees; therefore, Tex-Trude’s commitment to quality begins with the people we hire. As a family-owned and operated company, one of our greatest priorities is to hire individuals who emanate the values and principles for which our company has come to stand. We take great pride in the knowledge and loyalty of our management team, the work ethic and motivation of our office employees, and the skill and experience of our plant supervisors and line operators. All of our employees undergo extensive and continuous training on our equipment and products to further their capabilities and technical knowledge. Our goal is to treat our employees as family. As a result of this approach, we hope that our customers will also feel as if they are treated as part of the Tex-Trude family.

Tex-Trude is very confident in the quality and consistency of our finished products. To ensure that our customers are receiving the same product on a regular basis, our quality control begins outside of our facility on our rail line. Our quality control team is responsible for testing each quadrant of every railcar before offloading any material into our silos or facility. This diligence ensures that the product we are receiving from our suppliers is consistent with our specifications and expectations. 

In order to control the finished products as they are coming off of our production lines, we have multiple checks throughout the production process. These checks consists of our operators and quality control department doing routine testing on each production line as well as taking film or bag samples for further testing in our on-site lab. Depending of the needs of the customer and the specification of the products, our lab technicians test the finished products for gauge, coefficient of friction, size, seal strength, color and ink consistency as well as many other physical properties.

Tex-Trude’s commitment to quality has allowed us to remain a leader in the plastics industry for over 60 years. It is our hope that by continuing this commitment we will provide unparalleled products and services for our customers for another 60 years.
 

" Since I have been at Tex-Trude, I have had the opportunity to work in three different departments. I have learned so much, and I hope to grow in the future. "

Daniela Pozos

" I have recently celebrated 27 years of employment with Tex-Trude. I was looking for a job to get by in life but received a tremendous opportunity for a career in the plastics field. I am simply amazed by all the progress that has taken place since the November 8, 2008 fire that destroyed 2/3 of the plant. 
I am excited about the future and the progress we are making on a daily basis. Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.” "

Eddie Rodriguez, 
Supervisor

" Overtime, opportunities have presented themselves to me to advance in the organization. I feel that I have been surrounded by family. I thoroughly enjoy the people I work with. "

Eric Braren, Manager

" I have been with Tex-Trude for a little over a year now. I started as a Press Operator, and now with hard work, I was able to move up to the Night Supervisor. I am excited to see what the future has to offer at Tex-Trude. "

Noel Urrabazo

" As a member of Tex-Trude’s management team, I have been given the privilege of learning more about the blown film industry. Because of all of the fabulous Tex-Trude employees that have been working alongside of me, I have truly seen and feel what we call teamwork! Looking forward to the future is exciting! Being a part of the growth of such a wonderful company is truly a blessing. Camaraderie is evident in the daily work schedule as we see raw materials turned into a finished product and shipped to our customers. The Reprocessing Department is a piece of that puzzle in that the scrap materials are recycled right back into our process helping to keep our costs lower. In looking ahead, I see only good things!

" I have worked for almost 2 years at Tex-Trude and enjoy my role. Many people have been at this family-owned, safe environment company for over 25 years, which says a lot about this company. It is the best place to work! "

Tani Griffith

" I started with Tex-Trude in 2009 as a Forklift Operator, and I never would have imagined that it would turn into a wonderful career. Within two years, I was presented with an opportunity to become a Logistics Coordinator. As a result of my continued hard work, I was again promoted to the Shipping and Receiving Manager. I never thought that one day I would be running a department, but Tex-Trude saw my potential and has allowed me the opportunity to grow within the organization. "
