WHO WE ARE

A FOUNDATION BUILT ON INNOVATION, QUALITY & CUSTOMER SERVICE

Incorporated in August 1979, John Parsio began with one slitter in one location supplying polystyrene window film to envelope manufacturers.  Through diversification and expansion, Multi-Plastics, Inc. now has four divisions including film and sheet extrusion and film distribution with 10 locations in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom.  After partnering with premier film manufacturers, Multi-Plastics established itself as a leader in the slitting and converting of thin gauge plastic film in rolls or sheets supplying the envelope, carton, label, printing and packaging industries. In 2010, Multi-Plastics purchased two extrusion facilities solidifying its position as a supplier of polystyrene film and sheet and polyester sheet to thermoformers. Today’s products can be found in virtually every household and supermarket around the world.

At the beginning of 2010, MULTI-PLASTICS, INC. acquired two extrusion facilities in Hazleton, PA and Avenel, NJ from Reynolds Packaging KAMA. This extrusion division is now known as MULTI-PLASTICS, EXTRUSIONS, INC. For over 30 years, these two facilities have provided OPS film to the Envelope and Label markets. This will continue to be a valuable core business and is critical to our successful future. In addition, we are excited to emerge as one of the largest non-integrated merchant suppliers of OPS, PET, APET, RPET, PETG and other co-extruded sheet and film to the thermoforming and graphic arts industries.
