Performing like a small company has helped Preferred Compounding grow into the second largest custom rubber compounding in North America, says CEO and President Ken Bloom in an article published in June in Rubber and Plastics News.
“We’re nimble,” said Bloom. “There’s not a lot of bureaucracy here, so we respond and move very quickly. Yes, we’re a lot bigger than we were, but we’re fast … so I see us as a small company.”
In the article, he credits high quality materials, technology focus, broad range of capabilities, multiple plants in the U.S. and Mexico, relationship focus, and proactive reliable service for making Preferred into one of the top compounders anywhere.
