Scott Technology Networking Group

R&D Plus Engineering Alumni from Scott Paper Company

Who is invited to join If you ever worked for Scott Paper Company at any location, and you want to join a group that has a lot of people from Technology, then you are very welcome to join us.
Technology? Scott Technology was formed by combining Division Engineering with Research.  Most of us worked in Scott Plaza 2 or Scott Plaza 3 at the Philadelphia headquarters.  Many were also well known at manufacturing sites.
History The tradition began in the 1960's with the "Beer for Lunch Bunch", a group of technicians from Research in Plaza 3 just keeping their creative juices going.  Early instigators included Jack Zmijewski, Dick Mallon, Bill Carey, Pete DeNight, Elmer Boulden, Gene Pietreniak, Ed Kmiec, and Chris Arters.  Favorite locations were the Tinicum Inn and the Willows.  As the older ones retired from Scott Paper, most continued to attend these lunches, probably just to provide inspiration for the younger members.  Eventually, Scott Paper Company itself retired out of existence, but the "Beer for Lunch Bunch" just kept going on.  They added a holiday dinner, and a golf outing called the "Annual Chainsaw Golf Tournament".  The invitations broadened to include everyone from Technology, not just technicians, and not just men.  By the late 1990's, Rick Frampton was doing most of the work, calling everyone to inform them where the next lunch would be held.  Carl Ingalls offered to assist with the invitations for the Dec 2000 Holiday Dinner at Duffers in Concordville.  The guest book from that dinner was used as a "seed" for the Scott Technology Networking Group Listing, which has since grown from the original 47 people to over 275 today.
