Madison, WI (Feb. 1, 2010) — Placon Corporation, a plastic extruder and thermoformer, officially announces the launch of their new website,

Since the introduction of EcoStar™ extruded rollstock in 2008, Placon has seen considerable growth and interest in its line of PET packaging materials. There are currently seven different PET materials available and depending on the request, modification can be made to create a customized material.

It provides our customers with a direct information source on all our materials.

We offer the material solution for any packaging need.”
