Date:2/24/2013

Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) February 24, 2013

Governor Inslee visited General Plastics Manufacturing Company in Tacoma, Washington on February 14. Eric Hahn, Vice President of Organizational Development at General Plastics and chair the Tacoma-Pierce County Workforce Development Council welcomed the Governor and Alfie Alvarado-Ramos, Director of Department of Veteran Affairs. Linda Nguyen, CEO at WorkForce Central, discussed with Governor Inslee the programs and services provided to businesses and job seekers, including veterans in Pierce County.

General Plastics has been recognized for its strong track record of hiring veterans. Inslee has proposed a tax credit to incentivize veteran hiring as part of the “Working Washington Agenda” he rolled out this month.

Inslee toured the facility and held a roundtable with employees to discuss ideas for encouraging businesses to hire veterans. General Plastics employs 187 employees, of which 25 are veterans or 13 percent of the company’s workforce. The roundtable consisted of veterans from a range of positions in the company including engineers, technicians, sales, supervisors, production, and sales.

“We appreciate the governor’s continued focus on the Aerospace and Defense industry and we are committed to hiring as many skilled veterans that re-enter the workforce,” said Bruce Lind, President at General Plastics.
