About 5P News (5PNews.com)

Advocating for Wisconsin

5PNews is a weekly newsletter and website featuring positive stories on the industries in Wisconsin that helped build the State. Specifically Paper, Pulp, Printing, Packaging, and Plastic or the "5P`s".

Of course this also includes Flexo, Converting, Recycling, Forestry Management, manufacturing Equipment, and the hundreds of other businesses and industries in Wisconsin associated with our 5P`s. Alas that title would be long and  confusing.

Our goal is to remind the decision makers in Wisconsin of the importance of our industry both historically and more importantly into the future. 5PNews.com will be sent to 2,000 Elected Officials and staff, Press Outlets, and Industry leaders each week. It is free to subscribe (supported by the sponsors).

Some notes on 5PNews, First you may want to add Editor@WisconsinDevelopment.com to your email contacts. Second, With Wisconsin in the center of the national spotlight, it becomes more difficult  to find local articles about our industries -- bad news trumps good news (no pun intended), so if you have news to share send it to Marty at martinpochs@gmail.com. To contact me use Ken@Kenharwood.com. Finally our SUBSCRIBE link is now active.

The Publication is a joint effort of Marty Ochs with the Green Bay Innovation Group (GBIG) and Ken Harwood Editor and Publisher of Wisconsin Development News. Both Ken and Marty have been directly involved with our industries for decades.

Ken began his career with Kimberly-Clark, consulted with dozens of Fox Valley Companies and eventually became Mayor of Neenah Wisconsin before heading to Madison where he continues to advocate for Wisconsin businesses and communities. He is a journalist, cheerleader, and proponent for the companies that made Wisconsin what it is today. His other newsletters are read by 20,000+ people each week.

Ken notes, "Wisconsin can not forget the industries that built Wisconsin. We must continue to grow the businesses that we are known for while exploring new markets and innovation."

Marty Ochs founded GBIG to support Green Bay’s paper, packaging, printing, converting and support industries and has grown the effort to cover the local, state and national levels. Marty commented, "The impact and innovation of Green Bay’s paper and related industries often seems to go unrecognized, and we are going to change that."

Ochs grew up in Northeastern Wisconsin and began his career in the paper industry, so he felt determined to bring more recognition to the thriving paper field in Green Bay. With 40 years of experience in the paper and printing industries, Ochs set out to create a collaboration of Green Bay and now Wisconsin companies that would highlight and celebrate current innovation and new exciting innovations the industry is involved in.
