Pittsfield Plastics’ extrusion division, Plastic Extrusion Company, has enhanced its offerings in the plastic extrusion arena.
Plastic Extrusion Company has been enjoying increasingly high demand for the custom manufacturing of extruded plastic tubes and profiles. Extruded plastic products offer many advantages over cardboard and other materials because of their durability and moisture resistance. An example is the use of a plastic tape core rather than a cardboard one. Cardboard can warp, shed particles or become moist, and a deteriorated core can ruin the product it holds. Plastic avoids all these problems and their associated expense.

In addition, Pittsfield Plastics’ Plastic Extrusion Company directs its efforts toward assuring premium quality in its extruded products by employing equipment such as a four-sided puller, which provides more precisely round tubes than the two-sided pullers many competitors use.

“Even as we modernize our equipment, technology and facilities, it’s our small business attitude that really makes our products and relationships work,” CEO Tom Walker stated. “We have a lot of experience at this company, but no matter the project, our whole team gets involved.”

Pittsfield Plastics opened its doors in 1968 as an injection mold-making company. Pittsfield Plastics’ proprietary product line, custom offerings and unique size have facilitated the firm’s expansion.
