My family entered plastics distribution and fabrication in 1968. Dad listened to the guy in "The Graduate" and bought in. I was a teen with access to a shop filled with Plexiglas® Acrylic sheets, Lexan®, Plastic Sheets & Fiberglass sheet. Add UHMW, PTFE, plastic glue, Multiwall polycarbonate, Seaboard, architectural and engineering plastics. 40 years later I educate our team on new materials and processes - to customers worldwide. It’s new every day.

Another Price Increase for PVC, HDPE, Polypropylene, Starboard
Due to resin and chemical shortages, PVC, HDPE, Polypropylene, Cutting Boards, and PVC Foam board were hit with increase of 6-10% this week.
On July 15, all Plexiglas and acrylic sheet products will be hit with a 8% increase nationwide.
At least these materials are all made in the USA - keeping jobs here in the states.
