Recently on our social media channels, we highlighted our four manufacturing locations and the products we make there. We’re proud to deliver quality, American-made products to the automotive, construction, home improvement, retail, and medical industries.
Our Petoskey, Michigan manufacturing location was where it all started. Operations began in 1969; in 1976, we expanded and relocated to our current facility.
We first ventured into recycled plastics in our Petoskey facility in 1978. It wasn’t until three years later that the company purchased its first computer!
In Petoskey, we manufacture contour automotive seat covers, contractor bags, can liners, dental chair covers, hospital gowns, and medical bags, to name a few products. When the initial COVID-19 waves caused a shortage of personal protective equipment, the Petoskey plant took on the challenge of producing medical gowns. In 2022, we committed to delivering high-quality medical gowns and installed a state-of-the-art gown line.
In 1999, we purchased our second location in Morristown, Tennessee. An offset printing press was added to print 4-color paper floor mats in 2004, and an additional four extrusion lines were added during the recent 2018 expansion.
We make products like Slip-N-Grip® aftermarket seat covers and tire bags, painter’s plastic, automotive body-shop sheeting, contractor bags, plastic & paper floor mats, draw tape, and roll stock for converting here. In 2021, Morristown became our first location to manufacture our new GreenPE® Shrink™ Film product line.
Hartford City, Indiana was the next to join the Petoskey Plastics family in 2006. Shortly after, in 2008, we had a fully operational recycling facility within the Hartford City plant and doubled recycling capacity by 2011. In 2011, we expanded the plant, making room for a recycling sort line in 2016 and a wash line in 2017.
In Hartford City, Indiana, we manufacture products like our Steelcoat® and Greencore® trash bags, private label drawstring trash bags, can liners, and drum liners while producing our 100% post-consumer recycled GreenPE® resin.
Officially opened in the spring of 2021, McKinney, Texas, is our newest plant! We immediately launched into expanding the facility in 2022. Currently, in our initial startup phase, we are focused on producing private label drawstring trash bags. Contractor bags are on track to be made by the end of the year, and we have great plans for even more products as we grow.
The stories of our manufacturing facilities are important to us. Because of the great communities and associates in each location, we are able to provide high-quality, engineered, American-made plastic film products.
