About KLW Plastics

The company was founded in 2005 with a simple mission: to deliver the highest-quality plastic tight-head containers in the industry — on time, competitively priced and produced in the most technologically advanced manufacturing facilities in the industry – to enable its customers to be leaders in their respective industries. KLW Plastics manufactures 1-7 gallon, UN & non-regulated, tight-head plastic containers. Headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, KLW also has plants in Houston, TX and Atlanta, GA. In 2014, KLW began production of tight-head containers made of 60-100% post consumer resin as well as light weight “hybrid” containers that combine this technology with a corrugated container. The corrugated manufacturing technology allows weight reduction of 15-30%, while maintaining container integrity. With these products, industrial container users can reduce virgin plastic content, recycle and reuse containers, and reduce container weights of both plastic and corrugated materials.
