Opportunities to share, grow, and prosper.

At Placon, we design, manufacture, and market thermoformed plastic packaging for products in the food, retail and medical device markets.

Every day, we work together to innovate, recycle and transform valuable natural resources back into new plastic packaging while continuing to push the boundaries of sustainability and innovation.

At the end of the day, we know that behind every award-winning product design, improvement in process control and new customer won, there are great employees helping us realize our vision of being the first choice packaging partner for innovative design and collaboration.

Placon invented the plastic BlisterBox® clamshell, a leading stock packaging product found in stores across North America. We’re the company behind the innovative, easy-open packaging for the Gillette Venus & Olay razor and behind the round plastic containers at your local deli. We’re also a company that provides packaging for medical devices from orthopaedic implants to cardiac stents and diabetes test kits.

Each and every one of our products is made in the USA. And the majority of our PET plastic packaging is created from the recycled rollstock we extrude at our recycling facility. We’re proud to say we divert over 120,000 pounds of plastic bottles from landfills every day!


At Placon, we love life in Madison and nearby Fitchburg, Wisconsin. Both are fun, dynamic Midwestern cities that offer four seasons of arts and culture, sports and recreation, shopping, and family fun. Madison consistently ranks as a top community to live, work, play and raise a family. It’s home to our state capitol and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Dedicated to the recycling and reuse of PET, Placon’s EcoStar® line of extruded post-consumer recycled rollstock is currently found in some of the world’s top brand owners’ packaging.
