A tradition of delivering the best in sheet solutions – 35 years strong.Ex-Tech Plastics began with the vision to provide a service to custom thermoformed package processors by taking their scrap PVC and converting it to usable sheet for thermoformed packaging. At the time, 1982, thermoformers were giving away their PVC scrap (when they could find a taker in a limited user base) or were paying to have it discarded where it often ended up in a landfill. One of the founders of Ex-Tech, John Endrud, had the idea that he could take a negative asset and turn it into a profitable product for Ex-Tech and its customers.
Starting as a one-machine operation in a 20,000 ft. sq. building in Richmond, IL. Ex-Tech originally produced only 100% reprocessed, rigid PVC sheet for the thermoforming market utilizing the recycled materials collected from customers.
Business was a success right from our beginning. As demand grew, it led to rapid expansion, adding new production lines year after year in the first few years of business. As business progressed over the years, we learned that our sheet expertise reached beyond just PVC sheet, to include PET's and BioPlastics.
Today, the employees and owners of Ex-Tech are proud to be associated with a company that has thrived for over 35 years providing good jobs to the community and excellent service and products to our industry.
