The OSI Plastics Story

O S I PLASTICS, formerly known as the Plastic Division of Ohio Steel Industries, was established in 1975 in response to an extreme demand and shortage of supply in the marketplace for plastic sewer pipe. Our facilities and entrepreneurial spirit afforded us the opportunity to broaden our production capabilities and to apply our managerial and engineering strengths across a more diversified and broader base of customer, industry and marketplace. The diversity of our businesses provide us a competitive purchasing advantage and in the absorption of certain costs and affords us cyclical and seasonal stability over the traditional non-diversified organization. Since 1975, our expertise, production facilities, capabilities and our processes have developed and evolved in response to changes in the plastic industry and the marketplace. In celebration and recognition of our development and growth, and to better define our plastics business, we established and renamed our plastics division to O S I PLASTICS. This will allow our customers to recognize and associate our business to the plastics industry.

O S I PLASTICS is a recognized leader in the industry as a quality Pipe & Custom Plastic Profile Extrusion organization.
