    AUTOMOTIVE DRIVING HOME VALUE TO AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURING ​ There’s a lot that goes into making a car. And, if everything goes as it should, drivers will never see the parts we contribute to the quality of their vehicles. That’s because the things we manufacture work behind the scenes to create optimum driving experiences. We make custom-engineered water shield and laminating films for fabrics and non-woven as well as noise attenuation components. Basically, our products help to protect sensitive electronics and decorative finishes from moisture, and combat road noise to make vehicle cabins more comfortable. Dependable Industrial Packaging for All Applications We're your source for tough, affordable industrial packaging that protects your products. General Films offers a wide range of custom films from economically priced material for non-FDA regulated applications, to a single layer and coextruded films for special uses. We make linear, a low-density film from 7" tubing to large pallet covers and sheeting and offer a wide range of custom colors as well as a broad assortment of bags on rolls or separated. ​ Coextruded Film Products Some industrial packaging applications require the enhanced strength that only a coextruded film product provides.

  • Employee Spotlight | United States | General Films

    EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT Linda Lyons Senior Customer Service Representative When you love what you do, it’s gratifying to work hard each day. That’s how Linda Lyons feels about her career at General Films over the past 34 years. She appreciates being part of a talented team, with positive company culture, and the shared understanding that everyone is treated with integrity and respect. ​ Linda’s relationship with General Films began long before she was officially an employee. Her mother, Polly, worked at the company from 1967 until her retirement 38 years later. “I was always impressed by the close family atmosphere and I already knew that General Films was a great place to work,” explained Linda. When she joined the company in 1985, she began on the plant floor working alongside her mother in manufacturing. This early experience helped Linda gain valuable hands-on experience making products, as well as learning about equipment and processes. ​ Other family members have also worked at General Films over the years including Linda’s father, brother-in-law, and one of her daughters. “It really illustrates the close-knit relationship among GF employees and the long-term commitment that General Films has to the people in Covington and the surrounding communities,” said Linda. “As a retiree, my mom still attends holiday parties and special events, which is something that we enjoy doing together - it is all part of our extended General Films family!” ​ Linda moved from manufacturing to become the company’s primary receptionist and administrative assistant where she welcomed customers and became the first face for visitors. Linda understood the importance of first impressions and she quickly established a positive rapport in all her interactions. ​ As she further developed her skills, Linda was promoted to a customer service representative, where she has excelled for more than 20 years. Her natural enthusiasm and caring approach put the customers at the forefront. From checking on orders to updating pricing, Linda is passionate about helping customers solve problems. ​ “Our customers are always looking for new ideas to improve their packaging while cutting costs, and I’m able to help with that,” said Linda. ​ For Linda, customer service means something different every day, but it’s always about building strong relationships, which is what keeps General Films customers coming back time and time again. ​ “We are continually looking for ways to offer our customers the best possible service. Our entire team has a strong commitment to quality so it’s rewarding to be part of these efforts,” said Linda. ​ Linda enjoys spending time with her husband Tracy, her four daughters, and her seven grandchildren. She loves sewing and quality time with her loved ones. ​ BACK

    CONTINUING THE LEGACY IN THE NEWS General Films, Inc. Updated October 9, 2020 ​ Covington School Board of Education Recognizes General Films for Legacy of Community Service ​ Covington, OH—October 9, 2020 — General Films was awarded the Ohio School Board Association’s Business Honor Roll at the September 16, 2020, Covington Exempted Village Schools Board of Education meeting. For 75 years, General Films has been honored to partner with our community on education initiatives. The OSBA Business Honor Roll program recognizes just that—areas where businesses and schools are able to collaborate, ensuring that schools receive the support and real-world experience they need today while businesses are able to share the workforce skills students needs for tomorrow. General Films Founder Roy J. Weikert began his education in a single-room schoolhouse before eventually graduating from Covington High School. Following graduation, Roy attended Columbia University in New York City and completed his Bachelor of Science Degree at The Ohio State University in Columbus. Roy’s passion for learning was reflected not only in his formal education but also in his profession. A lifelong learner, it was Roy’s insatiable curiosity and inventiveness that led to General Films. Prior to WWII, Roy invented a manufacturing process that pioneered the Company’s first product; a plastic protector for men’s hats. Following service in the war—and along with his brother, Wayne—Roy’s curiosity and energy turned to creating new products and building manufacturing business. It was then that General Films was officially founded, making Roy an industry icon and flexible film leader. Today, General Films’ commitment to education and invention continues. Through the RJW Foundation, General Films presented Covington EVS with a gift that funded computers, plus a business education initiative. Later donations supported renovations and improvements to the school’s theatre. It was Roy’s nephew and current General Films CEO Tim Weikert who accepted the award. “Covington continues to be the setting for our company and family’s story,” said Tim Weikert. “We are honored to help support a new generation of learners and innovators, who we hope will look to Roy and General Films as their inspiration.” ​ BACK
