“NOVA has been an active member of the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce (BCCC) since 1977 ‘because we believe in active community leadership and investing in the future of the communities where we operate. The BCCC provides NOVA the opportunity to meet regularly with legislators, business, community and education leaders to raise our praise and concerns on issues important to sustaining our business in Beaver County.  NOVA Chemicals is focused on plastics and chemicals that make everyday life safer, healthier and easier.  NOVA and our predecessor companies have continuously operated the Potter Township manufacturing site since 1942 when the site was built by the US government as a synthetic rubber plant. Today we are one of North America’s leading producers of expandable polystyrene resin used in energy efficient insulation for buildings, protective packaging, and servicing the global foam cup and container marketplace.’ ”

“For many years I fought becoming a member of the Beaver County Chamber. How wrong I was! Being a Chamber member has helped me meet people at its events that I would not otherwise have the time to do.”
