Serving with honor and caring for the community

Lacree Parrish joined our team of Polymer Pros as a Production Operator on the strength of the experience and training she received while on active duty in the United States Air Force. The focus, discipline, and teamwork skills she developed during her military service will be invaluable in her new career at Shell Polymers. Parrish and her family are proud of her service and the opportunities it provided, and they’re excited to embark on the next chapter of their lives at home in Pennsylvania. 

Veteran recruitment

Shell Polymers has a deep respect for the capabilities of military veterans like Lacree. Special recruiting events held earlier this year at the Community College of Beaver County and Heinz Field in Pittsburgh appealed directly and successfully to veterans, who will represent more than 10 percent of the operator workforce at the new facility in Monaca.

Volunteer efforts

Giving back to our community is an important part of Shell Polymers’ commitment to Pennsylvania. Employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and energy to local charity organizations and benefits—like renovating the playground at Port City Park in Vanport, maintaining the flower beds at the Penn State Extension near Beaver Valley Mall, or working at the community food bank.

Bike program 

One of many volunteer programs supported by Shell Polymers is CommuniCycle, an organization that collects used bikes and parts and helps coordinate community events to assemble and repair them for deserving kids and adults. To kick off 2019, volunteers from our technical team spent part of a day assembling bikes. The experience not only helped our internal team-building, but also helped make progress toward our goal of having 1,000 bikes ready for children and adults in the local area this summer.
