Our History

For over a half a century the name Rutan Poly has been associated with quality, service and integrity in the manufacture of polyethylene film and bags. Our company has grown from its humble beginnings on a kitchen table into a solid, mid-sized corporation through simple adherence to these basic principles: honesty…integrity…and customer satisfaction. Principles we adopted two generations ago still apply to every aspect of our business today.

Early on we learned the lifetime value of a customer and, more importantly, the value of earning that customer’s confidence. We know that it’s not just good business, but an obligation to treat our customers honestly and fairly. So when you get a price quote from Rutan, you can count on it. When we give you a delivery date, you can rely on it. And when your order arrives, you will get what you’re expecting, because we precisely meet your specifications. This consistent philosophy has earned us our most important asset: good, long-standing customers.

“When you do business with Rutan you get the services of hardworking individuals dedicated to providing you with the best product at the fairest market price.”

Rutan extrudes its own raw material from both virgin and reprocessed polyethylene 24 hours a day. We can produce nearly any color film in a wide range of thicknesses. We also operate the latest conversion machinery, with specialized capabilities such as automatic wicketing, gusseting, and die cutting. In addition we can expand our capabilities to accommodate your specific requirements.
This integration of advanced extrusion and conversion technologies guarantees you the most cost-effective, on-time solution to your flexible polyethylene packaging requirements.

Rutan Poly manufactures over 50,000 different sizes of polyethylene bags for everything from transporting tropical fish to protecting new automobile engines. Since our inception, we’ve successfully solved packaging problems regardless of whether the problem is related to application, manufacturing technique, pricing per unit or delivery. It’s what we do.
