The Legacy of a Packaging Pioneer

Our Story

When Robert Schoeneck started his first blow molding company with his brother-in-law in 1959, it was one of only a few blow-molding operations in the U.S. But even then, Robert saw the promise of plastic packaging. So, when he founded Schoeneck Containers on his own in 1972, he focused on advancing blow molding and plastic packaging technology for his customers. Ever since, our company has continued to evolve as an industry leader centered on your success.
