AKRON—If your company is family owned, we want to hear from you.
In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Crain Communications Inc., the parent company of Rubber & Plastics News, we will be spotlighting the family owned businesses in our industry in the May 16th edition.
The Crain Global Polymer Group—including RPN—is collaborating on a special section devoted to family owned and operated business. We will bring you stories of universal appeal, covering topics such as succession planning, financing, health care and benefit plan issues, and resolving disagreements.
We also will focus on family companies within our industry and tell their stories, from small rubber product makers to some of the largest firms in the sector.
We want to hear your stories. What are the strengths of a family-run business? What kind of challenges do you face? What advice would you give a young entrepreneur who wants to start his or her own, family-run business?
If you are a family run business, please click here to fill out our short survey. We would really appreciate it if you could provide photos of those family members involved in your business.
RPN Managing Editor Don Detore is coordinating our coverage. If you have any questions, email him at [email protected].
