About Us

Summit Plastic Company helps our customers see more “green” by partnering with them to help them grow their business. We provide the highest quality custom-printed containers available for the greenhouse industry, offering unique marketing, branding and UPC opportunities to increase visibility, drive sales and help
your business flourish.

We’re Innovative:

We’re innovators in both product development and advancements in production methodologies, and are wholly committed to an ongoing investment in those areas to benefit our customers. Our JānorPot®, JānorPot® 3D System, ēco360® Easy Green™, and NetPots™ are a few of the greenhouse products we’ve researched, developed and introduced in response to customer and industry demands. Our new product introductions create industry trends that others try to copy.

Over the years, we’ve researched optimal production processes, built new manufacturing facilities, and then consolidated those facilities to give our customers the most efficient, cost effective and convenient buying experience possible. We continue to monitor and evaluate efficiencies in production processes and reinvest in the latest manufacturing machinery to ensure we maintain our leading industry position.

We’re Customer Focused:

We partner with our customers to help them brand their products, improve their growing practices and position themselves for profitability. Branding, labeling and packaging are competitive differentiators. We manufacture an enormous assortment of container colors to help growers products stand out. We’ve been on the cutting edge of dry-offset print technology for our JānorPot containers for nearly 15 years and are proud of offering industry-leading print quality, which helps our partners optimize their retail marketing goals. UPC pre-labeling enables growers to reduce their internal handling costs and using our 3D Systems® containers, labeling can elevate packaging decoration to new levels through advanced materials and unparalleled print quality.

We value the experience and wisdom of our customers, listen to their challenges and share their successes. In fact, some of our most innovative products started with customer inquiries about growing techniques or shipping and handling challenges. We’re proud to be able to help solve industry wide problems and help our customers succeed.

Our position of being a solution provider, combined with the highest level of customer service we offer has been a recipe for success for us and our customers.

We’re Environmentally Sustainable:

Summit Plastic Company is committed to environmental sustainability. Long before recycling was a mainstream business ideology, we were busy researching the topic and finding ways to successfully implement practices, equipment, and systems to accommodate post-consumer materials. Our Akron, OH facility was “research central” and led the industry with pioneering efforts for a sustainable, eco-friendly manufacturing model.

We continue to explore advanced manufacturing processes as well as new raw materials sourcing. The recent addition of NetPots™, the first completely plantable, bio-degradable, natural rice hull fiber growing pots illustrates our dedication to innovative and sustainable container production. NetPots™ are designed to withstand the vigor of automation greenhouse growing techniques, and move easily from retail shelves to final planting location. As a bio-degradable pot, they are specially formulated to be planted in-place, with nothing to recycle or toss.

Environmental sustainability is a driving force behind our commitment to the environment in which we live.

We make Quality Products:

We maintain the highest of standards with virgin and post consumer materials in all our products. We undergo
stringent quality control measures and ship only the finest materials to our distributors and growers.
