Profiles of Success

Eric Kroll
Superintendent, Menomonie, WI

Eric started with Silgan in June of 2003 while he was attending Menomonie’s University of Wisconsin-Stout. He began as a part-time employee sorting defective products before obtaining an internship with Silgan. After the training, Eric became a Management Trainee and a Supervisor. He currently holds the position of Superintendent. Outside of work, Eric enjoys hunting and fishing and the company of his wife and kids.

Craig Benson
Director of Project and Equipment Engineering. Oconomowoc, WI

Silgan is very focused on providing training for employees even with continued education in both long and short term seminars. In my own case, I was able to go back to school to get my MBA and also my Professional Engineering license that Silgan supported. The leadership has inspired me because they’ve stayed on mission. The same mission that they started out at Silgan 25 years ago is the same as we have today: "Being the Best" at what we do and making the best metal food packaging in the industry.

Matt White
Assistant Superintendent. Fort Dodge, IA

I started as a Production Supervisor after completing Silgan’s training program. During this time, I learned a lot about the technology, the product, and how to work with people as a team. About a year later, I became Quality Assurance Manager and in December 2017, I was promoted to Assistant Superintendent. There is room to grow and plenty of opportunities at Silgan and that’s exciting to me!

The "Requirements Related to Surprise Billing; Part I," is an interim final rule that will restrict excessive out of pocket costs to consumers from surprise billing and balance billing. Surprise billing happens when people unknowingly get care from providers that are outside of their health plan's network and can happen for both emergency and non-emergency care. Balance billing, when a provider charges a patient the remainder of what their insurance does not pay, is currently prohibited in both Medicare and Medicaid. This rule will extend similar protections to Americans insured through employer-sponsored and commercial health plans.

Transparency in Coverage Machine Readable File Information

The Federal Government has finalized the "Transparency in Coverage" Rule, which requires health insurers and group health plans to provide cost-sharing data to consumers via machine-readable files. These files must offer pricing data for covered items and services based on in-network negotiated payment rates and historical out-of-network allowed amounts. Anthem, Silgan’s medical plan administrator, has provided a link to this information that will be active beginning July 1, 2022.

Another aspect of these guidelines requires a consumer price transparency tool. This online tool will include personalized, real-time, cost-share estimates for covered services and items.

These new transparency regulations were created to give access to information on the costs of healthcare services. This will better help better estimate and understand out-of-pocket expenses before they are incurred.

The link below will allow you to search for your files using Silgan Containers Identification Number (EIN) 061269834.
