The Plastics Guy started out as a project in Brett's garage making a vintage boat windshield for our 1959 Dorsett El Dorado (pic on the left) that had seen it's better days. As a seasoned plastics pro he was astonished that Northern California boat owners had no local options to replace broken windshields and knew he could change that. After months of trial and error he perfected the art and began producing windshields for friends in his garage.
As a family run business our work is our reputation and we hope it speaks for itself. We love what we do and are passionate about creating products that exceed our customers expectations. As our children watch us work, we want them to see how dedicated we are to going above and beyond for the customers who have chosen to bless us with their business. Every countersunk hole and buffed edge that leaves this building is personally inspected by Brett or Chyanne to ensure it meets our standards.
Each of us left the "corporate" world so we could create a company focused on life balance, client appreciation and family unity. If you visit us you will often see our children at play or learning in our office. You may even hear them in the background when you call in or see them when we deliver parts. As our customer, we welcome you to our family and thank you for your business.
Owner / Fabricator
Brett, a.k.a The Plastics Guy, began this venture with a dream of combining two of his passions, boating and building, into one. Brett has a lifetime of experience designing, tinkering and building, and has developed a bit of an obsession with collecting tools. He has been in Plastics sales and manufacturing for over 6 years and has become a well respected leader and consultant in the industry. When he is not working, you can find Brett speeding through the delta with his wife and kids on their 2014 Yamaha AR-190, watching college football or helping neighbors with various DIY projects. Brett is an alumni of the University of Washington where he earned his Bachelors degrees.
Owner / Accounting
Chyanne, left her 10+ year career in the corporate accounting world to work at home with her two girls, Peyton and Braydee. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge in A/R and A/P, has set us up to accept payments through Square and keeps our vendors happy by getting all the bills paid early. When she is not helping us out with financial duties, Chyanne is busy chasing after the kids, homeschooling them through Pre-School and fostering their creativity. Chyanne has an insatiable appetite for reading and regularly devours books in a single sitting.
James "Jim", a.k.a. Taco, took to plastics fabrication like a wiz kid. From day one his attention to detail, mind for creativity and ardent work ethic, lifted our level of production to new heights. In the shop he works like an Olympic Triathlete often hammering out 12 hour shifts without blinking an eye. As a service minded individual, Jim's goal is to reach a 100% customer satisfaction rate and help us achieve all 5-Star ratings on Yelp. Jim and his wife Amanda are Sacramento natives, fellow entrepreneurs and music enthusiasts. Together they are busy raising their daughter, Bailey, and teaching her the tools of the trade.
VP - Chalk Design & QA
Peyton, a.k.a. Pumpkin, heads up our design and drawing department. Solidworks throws her for a loop, but she can sketch up some wild creations with chalk and sharpies on the shop floor with the best of them. Peyton has been learning about plastics since the day she was born and help's the fab team look over projects upon completion to make sure they are "pretty" enough for our customers. When not at the shop you can find her speeding along on her scooter while reenacting scenes from Frozen.
VP - Health & Safety
Braydee, a.k.a. Bean Bean, is serious about safety. Before setting foot on the shop floor, Braydee makes sure she is wearing appropriate eye, ear and foot protection. She also gently reminds us to wear our ear plugs and eye glasses if we happen to have forgotten. Thoroughly trained in Medicine by Doc McStuffin's, Braydee has become our resident physician and performs impromptu check ups to make sure we are good and strong.
CNC Operator & Fabricator
The Plastics Guy Family is thrilled to have our newest team member, Elairis Morrow, running the CNC for our customers. Elairis comes to us with years of experience in manufacturing parts in the airline fuel systems industry. Accustom to inspecting parts that need to be within 0.002" tolerance, Elairis brings a keen eye to the team elevating our precision and quality. When not at work, Elairis enjoys spending time with their favorite 4 legged fur baby and great friends from the Northern California SCA community.
