Wylie Royce 2021 Plastics Hall of Fame

No ‘lapse of reason’ for Royce

When Wylie Royce was announced as one of the nominees for the 2020 Plastics Hall of Fame, he joked the Plastics Academy had a “momentary lapse of reason.”

Royce quoted the Pink Floyd song during a recent interview with Plastics News discussing his induction into the Hall.

“I feel like it’s amazing to me on many levels,” he said. “It speaks volumes that you don’t have to be the most successful, the smartest, the most prolific, the richest — whatever you want to call it — to recognize you within your industry.”

Royce, a Hofstra University graduate with a major in business and minor in engineering, is well known in the plastics color concentrates sector, is celebrating nearly 45 years in the plastics business.

“I’ve had a good career, I tell people I’m kind of entering the final wash or spin cycle with my career,” he said. “You start wanting to give something back.”

Royce has “given back” by serving as the past immediate chairman of the Plastics Industry Association, treasurer of the group’s food, drug and cosmetic packaging materials committee; board member of the Foodservice Packaging Institute, as well as a member of Health Beauty America’s Technical Advisory Board.

“This is the culmination of a lot of people and a lot of things going in our favor over the years,” he said.
