On Wednesdays, we thank our investors — so a big thank you to MonoSol and their Associate Director of Production, Jeff Pawlak. Here are the 3 things you can learn from Jeff:

Tell us about MonoSol and your position.

MonoSol might not be a household name, but you’re never far from one of our products. Our company produces the water-soluble film that makes things like laundry and dishwasher detergent packets possible. Our film also is used to make things like dissolvable laundry bags for hospitals, engineered stone countertops, prosthetic limbs, and even the woodgrain-looking materials inside of vehicles.

My job at MonoSol is to oversee production at three of our facilities in Indiana, including the new plant in Lebanon. During my time with the company, we’ve grown tremendously. This has given me the privilege of playing an important role in our expansion projects, new lines, and new plants. It’s great to be part of a company that was founded here and is expanding and growing right here in Indiana, even as we now reach around the world. The MonoSol team has a tremendous sense of purpose because we produce a unique and very sustainable product that is used by millions of people every day.

Why does MonoSol support the Boone EDC?

The community has been very welcoming of MonoSol and giving back is part of our DNA. Whether it’s supporting the local food pantry, helping found the small business recovery fund, or partnering with local businesses, we want to be known as more than just a good neighbor and great place to work. We want to be a positive economic and social force for good in the places where we live and work. It was an honor to host Governor Holcomb, IEDC, Boone EDC, and several of our neighbors and community partners during our grand opening earlier this year. The spirit of business and community partnership was really apparent during the event and reinforced that locating here was the right choice.

Give us a fun fact about yourself.

As a dad, most of my free time revolves around spending time with my family. My favorite and most enjoyable activities involve spending time together, watching my kids play sports, riding motorcycles/ATVs with my boys. I was a three-sport athlete growing up, so it’s a lot of fun to be physically active together!
