The region around Beaverton, Mich., is full of small towns and tight communities. But from the humble heart of Michigan grew many of the world’s largest and most innovative plastics companies. The region is known as the Plastic Thermoforming Capital of the World. Among the companies living up to that legacy is Robinson Industries, a family-owned manufacturer of plastic pallets, packaging and other specialized items.
