General Plastics Once Again Recognized as a Boeing Premier Bidder by Boeing

General Plastics Manufacturing Co., a leading provider and manufacturer of rigid and flexible polyurethane foam sheet stock, built-to-print composite assemblies and finished custom parts, was once again recognized by Boeing as a 2024 Premier Bidder. The designation is presented to consistently high performing Boeing Commercial Airplanes suppliers. Members of the Premier Bidder program receive visibility of upcoming bids, additional consideration in proposal evaluation and access to exclusive Boeing events. General Plastics has consistently earned a spot in the Boeing Premier Program since its inception.

“The General Plastics team is honored to continually receive such a prestigious recognition from Boeing,” said Mitchell Johnson, Ph.D., CEO of General Plastics. “This distinction reaffirms our commitment to consistent delivery of top performing products and services that meet product design requirements, manufacturability, cost targets, load dates and customer expectations.”

General Plastics has been a supplier to Boeing for more than 80 years, starting in the early 1940s when it supplied the company with acrylic for B-17 bomber windows. Today, General Plastics supplies Boeing with its signature LAST-A-FOAM® range of rigid and flexible polyurethane foams for the flight deck and passenger cabin of their 737, 767, 777 and 787 airplane programs.

General Plastics joins approximately 130 suppliers that have met or sustained the high-quality, delivery and performance criteria required for inclusion in the Premier Bidder Program.

In 2018, General Plastics joined an elite group and received Boeing’s Supplier of the Year award for consistent performance excellence in on-time delivery and quality, and proactively providing cost-effective product, lead time and resource solutions.
