Midwest Container, a St. Louis-based company, manufactures plastic bottles in high- and low-density polyethylene, clarified polypropylene, PET, and more. The company produces 300 different configurations of rigid plastic bottles and offers custom production, including bottle design, SLA models and prototype molds.
Midwest Container’s owner was retiring. He wanted to find a buyer that would ensure the company’s legacy remained strong and that the personnel would be in good hands.
This acquisition expands Hub Plastics’ reach in the Midwest region, as it is originally an Ohio-based business. Both companies have significant overlap in customer base and suppliers. Hub Plastics’ purchase of Midwest Container adds complementary product offerings the company has yet to manufacture until now.
