Our parents, Fred and Suzanne Biesecker, started out as plastic pill bottle wholesalers in 1963. All activities were conducted out of the basement in their humble, 2000 sq. ft. home in Boyertown, Pennsylvania. Before the end of the decade, their rapidly growing business had evolved into a plastic bottle manufacturer for the pharmaceutical, health, and beauty industries.
As children, we remember talking about the business over dinner, helping our parents ship orders, and working in the manufacturing plant over summer breaks. Of all the wonderful memories, none is more vivid than the caring way our mother and father treated people. Our extended family of customers, suppliers, and employees were always treated with integrity, courtesy, and a genuine concern for their well-being. We continue to treat people this way at Drug Plastics, because our business values have been shaped by our family values.
We’ve been designing and manufacturing our own HDPE bottles for almost 50 years. When you work with us you have direct access to half a century of manufacturing knowledge and expertise. We don’t import our plastic bottles and plastic closures. We don’t have other companies make them for us. All of our bottles and closures are made in the USA. We’re proud to provide local jobs, support families, and help build stronger communities.
Drug Plastics is proud to be a woman-owned business. Our family atmosphere fosters an environment where we treat each other with respect and recognize our value as individuals. Aside from the social and economic benefits of supporting and working with a woman-owned business, you’ll find that the caring, responsive, customer-focused attributes of our culture are a direct result of our ownership.
We make HDPE bottles, PET bottles, and plastic closures for medicinal, wellness, and lifestyle products. Period. We focus our entire team on understanding the packaging needs and challenges facing the healthcare market. This allows us to service producers of prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, supplements, vitamins, medical and recreational cannabis better than anyone else.
While most companies claim to make a quality product, few claim to make a perfect product. Our goal is to make a perfect product, every time, no exceptions. This means we deliver predictable, repeatable quality you can depend on to keep your filling lines running smoothly.
As a manufacturer ourselves, we know that most companies claim to have great service, yet few actually rise to that level. At Drug Plastics, we make every effort to treat our customers in a responsive, dependable way. We care enough to ensure our customers get exactly what they need when they need it. It’s just the right thing to do.
Custom pharmaceutical pill bottles, supplement containers, and cannabis packaging is our specialty. Working with customers to create unique HDPE bottles, PET bottles, and plastic closures is our passion. However, we’ve also built the largest selection of stock bottles in the industry so we can be immediately responsive when quick production-ready solutions are critical. We know details matter and we care about providing every healthcare customer with the best packaging solution.
