About General Plastic Extrusions, Inc.

blown filmPrior to the start of blown film operations the company’s principles had worked to develop on farm storage of bulk feedstuffs. The customization required on the farm provided the foundation of serving our customers with on time delivery.

General Plastics was incorporated in 1993. The first customers were converters that turned our tubing and single wound sheeting into bags. Shortly after the demise of one of these converters the company bought its first bag machine and began converting film into bags. The single extrusion line and bag machine rapidly grew into multiple lines with in-line bag making capabilities.

In 2001 General Plastics expanded into co-extruded film. The third expansion to the plant was completed and a small three layer line allowed us to create simple modified atmospheric packaging applications for produce. It was also the year we became ISO 9001 certified.

blown filmGrowth into food and co-extrusion continued in 2007.  Five layer and additional three layer capacity provided the means to service the dairy industry and make further inroads into food packaging markets.

2013 has seen continued growth with the addition of seven layer capabilities.  This has been a continuation of our customers requiring more sophisticated film performance.  Oxygen barriers for the dairy industry drove the additions.  General Plastics also became SQF certified.  Safe Quality Food (SQF) is a food safety management system designed to provide organizations with a system to manage food safety risks, provide safe product and provide customers with a recognized food safety certification.  We remain ISO 9001-2008 compliant.

We move into the future with the expectation of additional growth not only in food but our original core of industrial applications.  There is no reason to think markets will remain static, they haven’t in the past.  We continue to position the company to give our customers the most benefit and value for their packaging requirements.
