Chase Plastics Material Handler  in South Bend, Indiana

Material Handler

About the OrganizationAt Chase Plastics, we're real people providing real solutions. It's something we've been doing since 1992, when Kevin and Carole Chase independently set out with nothing more than $2,500 in their pocket and a Detroit-bred work ethic. Their goal then - and now - was to do what big distributors would not: provide quality specialty, engineering and commodity thermoplastics for small- to medium-sized applications - and back it up with outrageous customer service.

Today, customer service is more than a value, it's instilled in our DNA, and it's inherent in everything we do. Just like the day we started, we're committed to providing you:

Real solutions that aren't delayed by red tape or inaction

A partnership based on a genuine understanding of your business and your goals

The tools and resources to help you succeed and thrive
