Recently, Mike Adelson: President of Mr. Plastics was interviewed on KRON4 News to talk about the COVID19 pandemic and Mr. Plastics response.
Since the shut down came into effect in California: Mr. Plastics has responded swiftly as an essential business. The company has been able to provide plexiglass and protective barriers to numerous health organizations and individuals. The most pressing to start were the PPE needs in hospitals. After hospitals, came other medical facilities likes dental offices.
Once more businesses were able to reopen: there was a surge in the need for acrylic materials: either raw materials or fabricated protective barriers (more commonly known as sneeze guards) in offices, restaurants, nail salons, hair salons, retail stores and most recently schools. Mr. Plastics hasn't ever had a shortage of material throughout the entire pandemic, which was due to Mike's strategic business planning.
The interview was conducted by news anchor Sanaz Tahernia and can be seen in its entirety below.
Mr. Plastics has been servicing hospitals, food distributors and transportation services for 35 years. We have always been a fundamental part of the manufacturing industry but more recently, plastics has become even more of a necessity because of the COVID-19 virus.
Since the Corona virus took precedence in the US, hospitals, grocery stores, and individuals donating their time are calling for all kinds of plastics to make face shields, masks and sneeze guards.
As we continued to work through this pandemic, we realize our duty is now two fold: to provide our customers with outstanding service and to contribute to the effort to fight COVID-19.
We continue to work hard to service the customers in the aforementioned fields, to make sure they are protected as they continue to work and interact with patients, customers and more.
If you are in need of plastic in any gauge or size we are able to take orders over the phone and via email. We do deliveries within the Bay Area and we can also service will calls at our facility. Shipping via UPS (depending on sizing) or drop ship is also available. Don'e hesitate to reach out!

We are pleased to give Mr. Plastics this updated look and we hope you enjoy it as well!
'Earlier this week, Mr. Plastics' Social Media Manger: Tillie Adelson was invited to speak at San Leandro High School's annual Career Day. It was a busy day with several presentations revolving around the questions: "Who are you?" "What do you do?" and "How did you get there?"
Here is a small recap:
Who are you?
My name is Tillie Adelson and I'm originally from San Leandro and work as a social media manager and blogger.
What do you do?
I work for Mr. Plastics spearheading all their social media efforts. When I first started working with Mr. Plastics, on a freelance basis in 2018, I realized they weren't utilizing any of their social media channels. So I immediately took on the task of collecting and creating content and got those accounts active.
How did you get there?
I started as a blogger for my own blog: My Stiletto Life and as social media became a larger part of blogging: I started to focus more on my growth there. Once, I saw success in the social media marketing space: I began freelancing for individuals and businesses that wanted someone to manage their social media. (As there were many businesses that knew they needed to be active in the space but didn't know how to manage or do the work.) With this, I realized social media was not limited to just one field but could be applied to many and was a viable career! Mr. Plastics came into the picture because it is my family business and I knew I could bring my skillset there and make an impact. (This blog is even a product of that impact: we are blogging!!)
Speaking to the students on Career Day, about social media and how it's a viable career was really exciting. Now there are degrees in social media and classes tailored just for a career in the field.
Many of the students were mostly interested in, you guessed it: the bottom line! How do you make money this way? and How do you live a balanced life? Which were great questions! My answers to them was to either freelance and work for several people at the same time or look for social media roles within large corporations that offer the full-time support.
Overall, it was a great day and the students questions were thoughtful and it was evident that they were excited about their future.
We are proud to congratulate our Warehouse Manager, Louie Jeronimo, on 9 great years of service with Mr. Plastics this month. Louie has been a tremendous asset to our company and has filled multiple rolls as our company has grown throughout the years.
"These folks are outstanding - five stars easy. Whether you're a ReadyMade freak or professional architect, Mr. Plastics has what you're looking for. Great selection of cool materials, knowledgeable service and competitive pricing. I needed some complex cuts on twin wall polycarbonate for a room divider I designed. TAP Plastics tapped out - they charged 2x and wouldn't do the spec cut. Mr. P gave me a free consult, reviewed my drawings and made some really great suggestions. Cuts were perfect and they delivered the pieces to San Francisco in pristine condition for a nominal charge."
