The Chamber is pleased to present this Q&A interview with Mike Leagre, owner of the Elwood-based Progressive Plastics. Mike also serves as a member of the Elwood Chamber board. We greatly appreciate Mike's time and willingness to allow us to feature him in this edition of HeartBeat.
CHAMBER: According to your website, you established your company, Progressive Plastics, in 2004. What made you decide to locate in Elwood? MIKE: Fate. I had never visited Elwood until 2003, but found myself here, working on an acquisition plan of a local business. That opportunity faded, but another opportunity to start a similar business with a local partner presented itself.
