We Care

Enriching communities and creating positive impact

AmSty has a broad geographic reach with seven manufacturing facilities located throughout the United States and Latin America. We care about the communities in which we operate, and we work to ensure that our operations impact the community in a positive way both economically and environmentally.

In addition to active community outreach efforts, AmSty participates in several Community Advisory Panels, which are comprised of key community members who represent various interests within each community. Members range from homeowners who live close to our plant facilities to healthcare professionals to local business owners and more. These panels provide an opportunity for AmSty to listen and respond to community needs and concerns. It also provides AmSty a platform for education and awareness concerning polystyrene.
