You wouldn’t hire a new employee based on hearsay. Important employment decisions require you to dig up your own information. When it comes to partnering with a custom poly bag manufacturer, the process is fairly similar. In the same way that you would interview a prospective employee, you should also ask key questions to get to know your manufacturing partners. At Rutan, we want to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about choosing a custom poly bag manufacturer. Here are the 5 key questions to ask before you choose a flexible packaging company:
Where are the poly bag manufactured?
Many of our competitors import bags from overseas or south of the border. While they may have their reasons for outsourcing production, we believe in a different approach. At Rutan, we only produce bags right here in the U.S. and this is the way we have always done it. We believe in having a hands-on approach to manufacturing poly bags, and that is why we never outsource production. Furthermore, we believe in the power of American manufacturing and keeping jobs on U.S. soil.
What customizations are available?
You never know how your flexible packaging needs will evolve in the future, so why get involved with a company that offers limited options? At Rutan, we work with you to bring your design to life in a custom poly bag that meets your exact specifications and brand image. Rutan has produced millions of custom poly bags for nearly every type of industry and product. Our company isn’t only an excellent manufacturer of poly bags; we also have the skills and experience to take your customized designs and showcase them on your flexible packaging needs.
Rutan has many custom poly bag options to choose from including:
- • Colored bags
• Freezer bags

Can I count on your customer service?
We can’t speak for our competitors, but here at Rutan, we pride ourselves on putting our customers first, every time. Rutan has grown from humble beginnings on a kitchen table into a solid, mid-sized corporation through simple adherence to these basic principles: honesty, integrity, and customer satisfaction.
We know that sticking to these principles is good business, but we also feel that we have an obligation to treat our customers honestly and fairly.

Experience is an important factor when choosing to partner with any business, but especially a poly bag partner. Over 50 years Rutan has learned what has worked well for our customers and what has not. We’ve made adjustments to our process over the years to ensure that they exceed expectations.
