Martha Williams, a partner in Gateway Inc. and chief executive officer of Stylemaster Inc., a manufacturer of injection- molded plastic storage products, and the nation's largest manufacturing company owned by an African- American woman, had grown up in the Robert Taylor Homes and had to travel four hours every day to reach her first job in plastic manufacturing.
As a result, she was committed to building her plant in the heart of the city, close to a population in need of work. She convinced her partner, William Bailes, of the wisdom of creating a new industrial park in Chicago. In June 2000, Williams, Bales, Jim Capraro, executive director of Greater Southwest Development Corporation, and Mayor Richard M. Daley stood together at the groundbreaking. Martha Williams and StyleMaster bring not only jobs and economic prosperity, but also a fighting spirit- a will to succeed in spite of long odds."
