" 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.” "

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!

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. "
