about AP Custom Molding

For the past 25 years, our focus is to supply quality custom rotational molding services by manufacturing and designing products that meet our customers expectations.

Agri-Plastics was founded in 1995 by the VanBurren family to satisfy a need for quality Agricultural equipment and very quickly became one of the largest calf hutch molders in the world. Then they expanded their markets to include custom molding of OEM components, in addition they acquired the Diamond Plastics ATV product line in 2009.

Between the two locations, AP Custom Rotomolding has produced quality, rotomolded parts with over 500 molds. As the company has grown and celebrate their 25th anniversary, they have endeavoured to employ very experienced staff in all areas of the business, which allowed continuing credibility and growth in the market.

Years

Experience

AP Custom Rotomolding has seen a lot of change in the past 25 years. In the beginning, rotomolded products were simpler with a single wall such as smooth tanks and bins. There were no robots and no color compounding.

But along the way, this industry has made significant advancements. We can now produce complex but affordable products with robotic custom cutting, color compounding, and multi-wall features.  Rotomolding is still advantageous because of its affordability and low startup tooling cost. And production runs can be small or large, allowing for improved cost control.
