A picture of Shania Twain, signed by the famed singer, hangs in the employee lunchroom at Plastics One in Roanoke County. It’s likely not the typical piece of artwork hanging inside a manufacturing facility.
The country pop singer once needed a quick order of cords to connect to her audio sets before a concert. Plastics One filled the rush order.
Twain thanked the company with an autographed picture and a “thank you” message for helping her out in a bind.
David Wallenborn, president and CEO of Plastics One, laughs as he tells the story, obviously a source of pride for the once family-owned company that began 68 years ago in a small building on Williamson Road.
