“Over the past year, I have had the opportunity to work with Jack Shelton and his team while learning more about the horticultural and plastics industries,” Orr said. “The Pöppelmann name represents high-quality products and excellent service in the plastics industry, and I will continue to support and enhance the company’s reputation in the U.S. market. This is a very exciting time of growth for Pöppelmann, and I look forward to serving the company in this leadership capacity.”
