Springfield Plastics celebrating 35 years
By Stefanie Croley
May 23, 2013 – Springfield Plastics, Inc. (SPI) is celebrating its 35th year of manufacturing, marketing and distributing drainage pipe to farmers and commercial contractors.
SPI, based in Auburn, Ill., is a Midwest manufacturer that has created plastic pipe solutions for people in the agricultural, residential/building, commercial and highway markets since 1978. The company was started by a group of local investors headed by Roy Baker, Wayne Baker and Glen Brandt. Wayne Baker retired in 1997 and his son, Steve Baker, took over the operations. The company continues its support for the farm drainage industry while gradually branching out into other areas associated with its product lines. In addition to celebrating its 25th anniversary, this is the 13th consecutive year SPI has received certification for use of 100 percent virgin resin in drainage pipe.
“Serving our customers for 35 years is quite a milestone. We thank our loyal customers and continue to strive to be the best solution for your drainage needs,” Steve Baker, president, said in a press release.
