The year 2017 marked Plastipak’s 50th anniversary and drives the company forward as Plastipak pursues continual growth and innovation. This milestone commemorated a half century of rapid growth, market-changing innovation, awarded achievements, and invaluable Young family heritage.
Founded in 1967, Plastipak started out providing innovative packaging to deliver water for the Young family’s water delivery company in Michigan. Much has been accomplished over half a century, as Plastipak is now a global leader in packaging and recycling with more than 60 sites located in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Embedded in Plastipak’s thriving growth is a commitment to sustainability across all operations. With four recycling centers across the globe, Plastipak has substantial recycling capacity to reduce its carbon footprint and offer sustainable packaging to its valued customers.
“With us, it’s all about driving home the sense of purpose, and our purpose is delivering great products and service to our customers,” states William C. Young, President and CEO. “The great work you do today is going to set the company up for more success tomorrow.”
In honor of Plastipak’s milestone anniversary, a celebration was held at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. Associates, customers, and friends gathered to commemorate Plastipak’s golden anniversary. The unforgettable celebration continues as Plastipak pursues innovation in the years to come.
