Located in central Vermont, our corporate headquarters in Bethel and neighboring facilities in Royalton are home to some of the most exciting, four-season lifestyles in the country. The region offers a tranquil, rural environment not often seen in today’s hustle-and-bustle world, with easy access to lively epicenters such as Burlington, VT or Lebanon, NH. Our headquarters pay homage to our rural surroundings, with our operations still running out of the original converted dairy barn our company was born in back in 1955.
Our employees seek out GW Plastics’ Vermont locations for the many benefits of living in Vermont. Outside of work, it is not uncommon to find our Vermont team members at a nearby golf course, kayaking down the White River, tasting at a local brewery, hiking or skiing the larger-than-life mountains, or enjoying maple delicacies at one of the many family-owned sugar houses.
If you are raising a family, Vermont is unparalleled as one of the safest and healthiest environments to do so. Experience the four seasons and the brilliance of fall foliage, skiing and hiking the best mountains in the East, and easy access to world-class, farm-fresh food. With its superior educational system and endless outdoor activities, living in Vermont is a no-brainer for families. Plus, no traffic during your commute means more time with your loved ones!
For small towns, Bethel and Royalton both have quite the storied history. Bethel is best known as the source of Bethel White Granite, which was used to build Union Station in Washington, DC and the National Museum of Natural History. Royalton is famous for being the home of Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism, and pilgrims flock to this area every year to visit his birth house and memorial. Royalton also houses Vermont Law School, the state’s only law school. Both towns have even been featured on the big screen, with Bethel’s claim to fame in the movie I Am Legend and Royalton’s center village and surrounding views featured in the opening scene for the popular TV show Gilmore Girls.
