Doors opened from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Customers were welcome to walk through the showroom/ equipment demonstration area, technical and customer support center, training room, and inventory control/material handling area to see how Johnson Plastics Plus has improved its business to better serve them. "We value our customers and want to invest in them to help them grow their business," Director of Marketing Communica- tions Jessica Heldman-Beck states.
