The 2019 Confer Classic was HUGE!

The fourth annual Confer Plastics Classic Golf Tournament took place this past Wednesday and it was our biggest and best ever! Here are some thoughts from the day… • We were blessed with 145 golfers. 145! Our previous high was 116, so this was a pleasant surprise • All golfers before and after the event had smiles on their faces. Everyone seemed to be having a genuinely good time. That might be the reason behind the growing popularity of the event – it’s a fun, no-pressure tournament that supports a great cause • The top eight teams each got prizes. Next year, we’re going to shake it up: The top 3 will get prizes, but the next 5 prizes we be randomly awarded to teams, whether they had a good score or an OK score – we will do this by drawing place positions from a hat • No one got a hole in one or a Hit It To Win It prize, but everyone tried really hard • My swing has not improved. I guess that happens when you golf just once a year • Willowbrook’s staff did a great job yet again managing the set-up, flow, and meals. Their grounds crew did an exceptional job especially given how wet the spring and early summer have been • Speaking of wet – this was the first time we’ve had rain during golf at the Classic. Luckily, it lasted just 10 minutes • Carol Genet is pretty darn awesome. Again, she and her team of volunteers did a fantastic job with the raffle. Have you ever seen such a...

King, Confer, Johnston join the Twenty Year Club

The coveted Twenty Year Club grows by 3 over the next week! First up on Friday is Mark King. Mark is in charge of our secondary operations department which handles packing of products, hardware kitting, post-molding assembly and special projects such as foaming. Mark is also one of our United Way liaisons, a regular tour guide at the plant, and has served as the foreman on all three shifts. On Saturday, Connie Confer celebrates 20 years. She is the human resources manager and a third-generation Confer in the family business. She was able to work with her grandfather Ray, the company’s founder, for a year before his passing and is still working with her dad and brother. She oversees the payroll and benefits for more than 200 people across 3 locations. Along with Mark, she handles the booth at special events in the community, such as Niagara County job fairs, Niagara University’s Earth Day and the Niagara Air Show. Next Friday, Tom Johnston hits the two decade mark. Tom has been the material handler on third shift for many years. In that role he takes product from the machines to the warehouse or trailers and also brings materials and components to the workstations. One job that he excels at is systems cleaning, a process in which colors are changed on various jobs. He has it down to a science and the changeovers during the overnights are consistently efficient, minimizing downtime. These three bring our Twenty Year Club membership to a total of 35. We appreciate their devotion to the company, our customers, and our coworkers. Twenty years is a...

Homeschoolers tour Confer Plastics

We regularly give group tours of the factory to classes and clubs from public and private schools. Today, we held our first tour that gave homeschooled students that same opportunity. We had put the invitation out on social media a couple months ago and had over 20 people — of all ages — attend today’s activity. We took the families on a plant tour, held a Q&A session, and talked about business, entrepreneurship, and career paths that can be had in the industrial sector. It was a good experiential learning event…seeing manufacturing taking place is always an eye-opener. This is the first of what will be many homeschool events. We plan to host a homeschool tour every June and December. Keep an eye on our social media this fall for date, time, and...

Ribbon cutting at Gratwick boat launch

May 23rd was the big day — the Confer family and officials from the City of North Tonawanda conducted a ribbon cutting of the electronic kiosk at Gratwick Park that will issue boating launch passes. The Confers came up with the idea for this project and Confer Plastics donated $10,000 to the City who did a great job of installing and integrating the system. This project came about because the Confers had concerns that tourists couldn’t access the mighty Niagara River from the park. Until now, season boating passes could be had but they needed to be applied for at the City offices during the weekday business hours. If someone wanted to boat on weeknights or weekends they would have to launch in another municipality or risk getting ticketed. This system now gives out-of-town boaters the ability to get a one-day pass for $5 that gives their families a chance to enjoy this beautiful stretch of the Niagara River that features great views, world class fishing, and extraordinary birdwatching. People come from all over the world to experience the Niagara region — and this gives them the chance. Not only does this get families outdoors, it also provides benefit to the local community — boaters will visit North Tonawanda restaurants and the City will have a new revenue stream that can be used to further enhance Gratwick and other City parks. It was a nice ceremony and we truly appreciate the kind words of City...
