As Plastipak grows, we keep the commitment to sustainability and industry at the forefront of our operations.
Engagement is important to Plastipak. By engaging the hearts and minds of associates,
Plastipak creates unique and sustainable packaging solutions for its customers.
Consumers and corporations alike must be engaged in order to sustain the planet's resources.
Such unified engagement has powerful, long-reaching effects. Participation in conservation initiatives has a positive impact on the economic, human and natural environments.

to preserve the earth's natural resources for today and tomorrow.
