Who we are

SPE Golden Gate section has been Northern California's plastics support group, networking hub and educator since the 1940's. Today, our mission continues to focus on education, advancing plastics technology knowledge and helping professionals and students in all areas of the plastics industry by providing networking and educational events as well as facilitating student and professional collaborations within our community. The objective of the Golden Gate Section is to promote scientific and engineering knowledge relating to plastics. The SPE GGS will continue to bring innovation to our members by relevant monthly programs. Partnering with other local companies and educators to share knowledge, resources and leverage volunteerism through mutual interests and the philosophy that together we can achieve more. Our section's primary purpose is to support our members with opportunities to learn and innovate through a collaborative framework in a community focused on advancing plastics technology and sustainability.
