Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds visited the Adair, Iowa plant of ESOP Association member Owner Revolution Inc. on March 8, 2012. The following is from a press release the company shared with The ESOP Association.
Owner Revolution Inc. is a 100% employee-owned ESOP company with plants in Adair and Atlantic, Iowa. The company manufactures a wide variety of plastic products for the lottery, consumer, marine, OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and point of purchase markets.
“Ours is a company that many have probably never heard of,” said Don Hudak, President and CEO of Owner Revolution. “Yet, we make a wide variety of terrific products, do business in all 50 states and 70 countries and are vital to the economic vitality of rural Iowa. As an ESOP, we are particularly proud of our employee owners who through their hard work and dedication give us a competitive advantage that helps us differentiate ourselves and serve customers better.”
“I hope that our visit will draw attention to this growing and successful Iowa company,” said Gov. Branstad. “We need to spread the message to all Iowa industries to learn more about and consider our own Iowa companies first when seeking plastic OEM parts and other plastic supplies.”
“We must share the urgency of Iowans to revitalize our economy,” said Lt. Gov. Reynolds. “Owner Revolution, Inc. is a wonderful example of an employee-owned Iowa company that is growing and creating jobs for today and careers for the future.”
