Sales (United states)

Q.1Please tell us about your job content.

My role in Polyplastics is Sales Account Manager. I am responsible for the promotion of Polyplastics and the development of new business with various customers throughout North America. My main activities include introducing Polyplastics to potential customers, developing strong client relationships, generating quotations, communicating market and competitive intelligence to the greater Polyplastics organization, managing growth plans with our trading partners and local distributors, marketing Polyplastics at trade shows and industry events, and creating sales strategies for successful market penetration. I believe essential skills for this position are strategic sales & planning, cross functional leadership, prospecting & lead generation, and customer relationship management.

Q.2Kindly let us hear what is the benefits Polyplastics provides you to speed up your growth.

Polyplastics excels at creating a company atmosphere of inclusion and support. They provide a variety of training opportunities for new employees, close global communication between regional teams, and consistent reinforcement of the "Polyplastics-Family" principle. This principle stresses achieving the best possible teamwork through cooperation and trust. Polyplastics balances this support with encouragement of each employee to take their own initiative in creating & implementing plans to build business relationships with potential customers. I feel the freedom to work independently under the umbrella of the Polyplastics support system allows quicker professional development than would be achievable otherwise.

Q.3How would you describe your future career challenge as a member of Polyplastics?

Throughout Asia, Polyplastics is a well known brand; we have a strong portfolio in many different industries. This is not the case in North America. We are a relative newcomer to the Engineering Plastics market here. Therefore, the biggest challenge I face as a Sales Account Manager is effectively promoting our company in an extremely competitive environment where many of our competitors are already well established. We have heard many times, "Polyplastics who?" The exciting thing about this challenge is that we have a very appealing company philosophy: we are a full service solutions provider. This really resonates with potential customers. We are finding this is much more valuable to our customers than what they are used to from our competition.

Production (China)

Q.1Please tell us about your job content.

I am serving as the production section manager in Polyplastics (Nantong) Ltd. (PNL). My mission is to continuously meet company and PPC Group's expectations for a production unit, by developing and facilitating the people, and by getting the most out of all resources which are made available.
More specifically, my major responsibilities include securing the safety operation of PNL's production, maintaining the continuous improvement respecting quality, cost, and productivity, keeping an effective budget control, and particularly, since PNL is a very young company, to develop a competent and loyal local operation team. For fulfilling that, I should be an effective "teacher" dedicated to expand knowledge and skills in the team, a sensitive "counselor" to deal with a range of emotionally charged issues and distorted perceptions, and also a master "gardener" to create and preserve a fertile culture that stimulates mutualism and growth.

Q.2Kindly let us hear what is the benefits Polyplastics provides you to speed up your growth.

It's been 8 years since I joined Polyplastics, I'm glad that in this period I experienced an abundant career started as a shift-team member in PTM and as a production manager in PNL presently. In my feeling, PPC is a company that places the least barrier on the way for you to become the best. If must enumerate something, for me, she offers plenty opportunities of "To Know" and "To Practice".
I kept getting "To Know" because I received a lot of trainings both domestic and overseas, had frequent occasions to communicate with and learn from the profound experts and skillful colleagues from all group companies. I kept getting "To Practice" through assumed different positions, worked in different group companies, and more fruitfully, engaged or led various improvement projects in the past 8 years. Actually, working in Polyplastics itself, let me increase my know-how and experience regularly since she's the leading company in the engineering plastic industry.

Our team provides technical support to our customers. If we can't offer them the things they need, they will not be satisfied with our work.

We always collect the customer's requirement from other departments, then focus on analyzing them and provide our customer final solution.

Finance & Accounting (Malaysia)

From there I can see the whole picture of Company's financial reporting and cash/financing matters.
