Based in Chicago, IL, since 1964 PortionPac Chemical Corporation has formulated, packaged and marketed environmentally sustainable, portion-controlled envelopes of concentrated liquid cleaning detergents for industrial facilities such as schools and correctional facilities. At PortionPac, executives maintain a deep understanding of how front-line workers impact the business by occasionally working on the factory floor; this has led leadership to give their 84 workers a high degree of autonomy. In terms of bottom line impact, this focus allowed the company to grow revenue and keep all staff in 2009, while competitors suffered losses and shed jobs.
