How a Career with PMC Molds You for Success Now & in the Future!
Larry Floyd – President of Plastic Molded Concepts (PMC):
“I remember those days when my parents would tell me to get a college degree and become someone to be proud of. Wow, what pressure! I just couldn’t see myself sitting behind a desk all day, every day. It all sounded so boring!
Then I started to really think about what exactly I wanted to do when I grew up. I decided to do a self-audit of all my interests and hobbies. What I figured out was that I was always curious about how things worked.
My first real job was a machine operator in a plastic injection molding factory. The first week was boring, but I decided I really needed the money so I started looking around and asking lots of questions.
Then, one of the technical people came over to me and asked if I wanted to learn how to handle materials. I jumped at the opportunity to move around and learn something new.
Pretty soon I was promoted up to a Material Handler. After that I was trained to be a person that sets the molds in the machines. Within a year I was starting the machines and training new operators!
Well, I fell in love with the plastic molding business. That was 1963. Just 12 years later I started my own business, Plastic Molded Concepts, which has survived & thrived for the last 42 years.
Wow, how time flies when you love what you do! When I was in college I never dreamed I’d have a job that I still liked after all these years. I still enjoy coming to work every day!
