What Is Local First?

Local First is a community program that aims to place the Orange County and Golden Triangle region first when sourcing suppliers, vendors, and workforce for our project. We are collaborating with several community organizations to develop programs that will help area workers and businesses see and compete for available opportunities.

Golden Triangle Polymers launched Local First in March 2023 with a $400,000 donation to Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas and Orange County.
