PLASTICS GROWTH CLUSTER OVERVIEW

While a major anchor company in Northern Colorado is a retail consumer plastic product producer, many companies in the region supply the production industry or produce plastics for medical purposes.

Because of this, a number of companies categorized in this cluster via published economic data sources likely self-identify within bioscience & medical or manufacturing production and fabrication clusters.

Additionally, these companies might supply any other industry cluster with composite material needs, including aerospace & defense, and information technology. This cluster also includes companies that perform R&D and innovation in consumer plastic products and those that use 3D printing technology for custom component fabrication utilized across a range of industries.
