Cope Plastics is the premier distributor and fabricator of plastic sheet, rod and tube across the Midwest delivering solutions to our valued customers since 1946. The company is proud to be a certified Women Owned Business by the NWBOC since 2012.
The European Plastics Distributors Association (EPDA) is a membership organization committed to promoting distribution as the preferred path to market for semi-finished plastic parts. Established in 1973, EPDA’s members are the owners, CEOs, directors and top executives of Europe’s top manufacturers and distributors of plastic sheet, blocks, rods, profiles, tubes, pipe, valves and fittings.
The International Association of Plastics Distribution (IAPD), established in 1956, brings together manufacturers, distributors, manufacturers’ representatives and service providers in an environment which encourages a free flow of ideas and information that help members build their businesses. Every program and service we provide is designed with the simple goal of helping our members increase profitability.
