So... What's your name?

Plastics.com welcomes our new main sponsor: The National Plastics Center.  Under their sponsorship we're building an entirely new site, linked with their new site and sharing a common interface.

We're launching our new site section by section and the blogs here will keep you informed of our progress and upcoming additions. As we start the new site, we'll have our most popular function, the Community Forums, up and running, as well as the basic NPC content.

When the new sites launch, incomplete modules will link back here to indicate their status within the build plan.

Here is a list of whats coming and the updated status of each section...

What's being worked on right now?
Currently we're completing the transfer of NPC content to the new sites.
