About President John Skalla
I have been in the plastics industry for 15 years. I started in distribution with Cope Plastics in Waukesha, Wisconsin in 1995. My main focus there was the sale of mechanical plastics and plastics solutions for a wide range of industries. My personal goal while with Cope was to learn as much as I could about the plastic industry, products and application solutions in order to become a leader in the industry.
In 2000, I was approached by Sheffield Plastics to be the Great Lakes Territory Sales Manager. That role expanded quickly into managing the central portion of the US for Sheffield. From there I took over management responsibility for Western United States, Western Canada, and Mexico. I have been especially proud of the significant growth over my ten years with Sheffield Plastics, both in sales numbers and knowledge of the products. Equally important has been the relationships I have developed with the people in our industry.
In 2010, many opportunities presented themselves but most appealing was the opportunity to focus on where I started, the Great Lakes States. I enjoy the area, the people and the challenges ahead. I want to thank everyone for supporting Great Lakes Unlimited, Inc.
The future is unlimited for us all!
