Choosing Independence

March 31, 2001 - 20:00


MIKE FLINN, PRESIDENT of Scope Packaging Inc., receives monthly solicitation offers to sell his family's Orange, Calif., sheet plant, but he chooses to remain independent. Why? "We're a family business. My dad and mother would never want to sell this place," he says. "This company supports a lot of families that have worked here for a long time."
