Northland Plastics offers comprehensive plastic fabrication services as part of our secondary operations. We specialize in unique and complex fabrications including automated inline fabrication, custom fabrication, assembly and more. As an experienced plastic extrusion company, we understand specifications for a plastic profile extrusion are different depending on the application, and that meeting all requirements is essential to our customers’ (and our) success.

Secondary operations allow us to meet our customers’ needs when their plastic part requirements either cannot be met technically in line (kitting, specialty packaging) or when it’s not economical to build tooling/capabilities in line (lower volume products). Our plastic fabrication capabilities allow us to provide customers with the finished good they require for the lowest possible total cost.

Specialty Packaging & Assembly

Depending on the unique needs of each customer, Northland can offer specialty packaging, labeling and assembly. These value-added services not only provide customers the ability to select packaging required for their products, but also allows plastic extrusions to be co-packed with other products (screw packs, additional extrusions, injection molded parts, etc.) so that a packaged assembly can be sent either to the customer or directly to an end-user.

Northland Plastics believes strongly that its secondary operations team is vital to offering the value-added services our customers desire. Having a single source for both extrusion and fabrication allows our customers to meet their product demands in a timely and cost-effective manner. From additional fabrication, to packaging and kitting, to sourcing the best plastic extrusion materials, we’re proud of our ability to meet each customer’s requirements for their product.
