Even though many businesses were hindered by COVID-19, Anchor Plastics was able to push through it. Anchor Plastics is excited to say that they had a 50% increase in first quarter sales compared to last year. 2021 continues to look as promising in growth. Investment in sales and technology were key devices in making this happen. This included reaching out to past and current customers with new project opportunities and cost savings. Anchor is prepared for what projects 2021 has in store for them.

There are some tips and tricks Anchor has found throughout time that have helped improve business. Anchor has found a way around the employee shortage. The way around the employee shortage is by hiring part time employees. People tend to want to work for a few dollars more an hour for less hours which keeps them motivated to come back day after day. Part time employees have the potential of turning into full time employees. Anchor has the ability to be flexible with schedules as long as the work that needs to be done gets done on time.

Anchor has also found it super helpful to have interns in the office. Not only does it help the company but it also helps the intern gain experience in all different aspects of a business. A lot of Anchor’s interns work in many different areas like marketing, human resources, sales, engineering and even help out with production.

Anchor recently had two sales interns in the office that ran through their sales list and were able to get some new customers. Anchor is always looking for new customers and the opportunities that come along with them. These new opportunities get Anchor trying things for customer to potentially lead to a long-term customer relationship. This is a great opportunity as everything is opening back up and companies are wanting more of everything.
