Sims Plastics Today

Today, Sims Plastics is known for irrigation, oilfield, septic and municipal products. The company employs 20 people. Annie Sims is still the owner, with Glynn Braudaway serving as president.

Together, Annie and Glynn are committed to maintaining Sims Plastics as one of the most successful plastic supply companies in the area, following the family tradition of honesty and integrity established back in 1979.

“I remember going into Sims Plastics with my Dad when I was a kid; now they ask how my grandson is doing. In well more than 30 years, I have always walked out of their doors satisfied and with a solution in hand or on the way. Their 'can do' lets me get it done.”
