The concert last night was amazing. The lead singer was our very own Terry Barber, a shareholder and Director at MR CHAIN, and, of course, a grandson of our founder, Michael Russo. The crowd was so enthusiastic, and the music was glorious. Thank you, Terry. You always make us proud.
p.s. Our red stanchions and chain looked great at the entrance!
We are always happy to see even more new and unique ways to use plastic chain. Besides the most obvious uses for safety, visual barriers and crowd control, our chain is used for goat collars, jewelry, and has even been featured in several TV shows and movies. On Super Bowl Sunday, imagine our surprise and delight to see the chain used to set up a driving course for a miniature remote-controlled Lexus!
On our way to Orlando for the 2015 Grainger show. This is always a good opportunity for us to spend time with our customer, meet lots of new salespeople, and even some of their best customers.

We know that many are concerned with the use of plastic materials and the effect it has on the
environment as well as our health. Mr. Chain shares that concern and has reformulated all of our colors
to be free of heavy metals. Our products still contain agents to resist fading and protect the integrity
of the product. No worries when using our plastic chain and stanchions!
Sleepy Hollow, new on Fox this season, is the modern version of Washington Irving's, Ichabod Crane. What better to contain the Headless Horseman than some 4" and 5" plastic chain from Mr. Chain! Check our chain's debut in the video below and tune in Mondays at 9/8c for all the chain action!
With all the hype about creating American jobs, we invite you to explore this avenue presented by Alex and Ana Bogusky.
As the video states: "It's as simple as this, every time you buy something, make sure its made in America. But you have to pay attention, sometimes even if you think the brand is American, even if there is an America flag on the package, it may not be made here."
Mr. Chain is proud to bring you American-made plastic chain and stanchions for 53 years. Contact us for more information today, and join the pledge to "buy 5% more US-made product and share this video with two people."
Earlier this year Keep America Beautiful (“KAB”) and the Ad Council launched the “I Want to Be Recycled” campaign aiming to motivate recycling in American households. The campaign features common household products for recycling and what they can become once recycled. These include a milk bottle becoming a park bench or a tin can becoming part of a bicycle. “The Ad Council and KAB say that other EPA data indicates only about 35 percent of the 250 million tons of trash Americans generate annually is recycled.” (Source: In the Hopper: SPI’s Business Blog).
Recycling is an initiative in Mr. Chain’s sustainability policy and we urge all customers to recycle products at the end of their life. Plastic chain and stanchions made of HDPE are #2 recyclable. Polystyrene used to make our Ground Stakes, Reels, and Edging is #6 recyclable.
Visit IWantToBeRecycled.org to learn more about the campaign and find a recycling center near you.
