Raleigh Plastics

Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina and is the second-largest city in the state behind Charlotte. Known as the “City of Oaks” for its abundance of oak trees that line the streets in the heart of downtown, Raleigh is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. The city also boasts another nickname – “The Research Triangle” – for the three large research universities located nearby: North Carolina State University in Raleigh, Duke University in Durham and North Carolina Central University in Chapel Hill. Following the establishment of The Research Triangle in 1959, thousands of jobs were created in the field of science and technology.
