The plastics industry is perhaps the most important industry we deal with, however indirectly, on a day-to-day basis. Take a moment and think about all of the things you use every day that are made of plastic; it is a staggering thought. What is even more overwhelming is to imagine our world without plastics. One of the best processes the plastics industry employs to provide us with the products we rely upon so heavily is rotational molding.
Rotational molding seems like kind of an overly elaborate process considering the simple kinds of products it is used to produce. Injection molding, extrusion and even blow molding seem more modest and sensible – they’re more compact, less showy. Consider everything that’s included in the rotational molding process. The process of creating rotationally molded plastics begins when an engineer designs a mold cavity that will be used to shape raw plastic later in the process. That mold cavity’s shape resembles what the finished molded product will look like. This part seems simple enough.
Fibertech is one of the industry’s leading, customer-driven plastic rotational molding companies. William Scott founded our company on his deep understanding of the plastic container industry which he gained during his time spent repairing damaged containers. Our company released its own brand of rotomolded bulk containers in 1999 that proved to be one of the most durable containers on the market. Today we manufacture many different plastic products, specializing in material handling containers, but since the beginning, we have focused on one thing: our customers. Our company believes that “the relationships you make with your customers are as important as what you make.”
I am fortunate to live in a city with an excellent recycling program. Our city has managed to build up a single-stream recycling system, which means that residents are issued single bins into which all of their plastic, metal and glass recyclables can be loaded at once. The service runs once every other week, and here’s the best part: it’s free. The big plastic bins are issued by the city for free on demand, and the pick up service runs free of charge.
