Our History

Rooted in Fairfield, Iowa, since 1978.

Founder Richard “Dick” Smith launched Agri-Industrial Plastics Company in 1978 with one used blow molding machine and four employees. In the early years, the company actively participated with industry leaders in the development of the blow molding process, as materials and machines evolved.

The company has grown steadily over the years in response to increasing demand for quality blow molded parts. We’ve developed unparalleled capability in application development and the conversion of other materials to plastic blow molding. Our design, engineering and process know-how has become the hallmark of our reputation in the industry.

In 2004 Agri-Industrial Plastics was the first non-automotive custom blow molder to invest in multi-layer continuous co-extrusion blow molding capability to produce low perm EPA compliant fuel tanks. Today our 20 acre campus includes over 340,000 square feet of manufacturing space housing 20 state-of-the art accumulator head extrusion machines, 8 multi-layer continuous co-extrusion gas tank machines and the best available supporting automation technology.
