For us, business is personal.
Together we are One Cope.
We may be one of the largest distribution & fabrication companies in the country, but you wouldn’t instantly know that by working with our tight-knit team. We’re united in our dedication to providing the best materials and plastics solutions the industry can offer. We are One Cope.
What is One Cope?
Our Founder's Philosophy
From our humble basement beginnings 75 years ago, we carry Dwight Cope’s ideals with us today. Family is the foundation of our lives. Honesty builds integrity. Loyalty strengthens relationships. Respect must be earned. Freedom should never be taken for granted.
Teamwork at all levels. Open and honest communication. Proactive thinking. Continuous improvement. Collaboration, cooperation, synergy. Departments coming together to find solutions. We know that working together to help our customers thrive, everything is achievable. That’s One Cope!
We believe in supporting organizations that improve our communities. From city beautification initiatives to cancer research, we give time and raise funds to lift those around us. Current and past participation includes: Pride Inc., Susan G. Komen, Friends of Kids With Cancer, Delta Dental, RiverBend Growth Association, United Way, Shoeman Water Project, Toys for Tots, Riverbend CEO, Southern IL Employers Association, Lewis & Clark Community College, and International Association of Plastics Distribution.
Our One Cope team is united in our mission of creating solutions that further your business. When you work with us for custom fabrication projects, we’ll spend time listening to you first so we fully understand what you’re trying to accomplish. Then, we’ll stop at nothing to deliver you the products you need—from pushing the capabilities of our equipment to innovating new techniques in using it.Visit
Just what you need and just in time are the only two outcomes that really matter when it comes to distribution. We keep our finger on the pulse of a wide variety of industries to ensure that our inventoried materials stay in line with current trends. We want to be the partner you can always trust to help you in a plastics emergency!
We’ve been around for over 70 years, and we want to be around for at least 70 more...and there needs to be a planet still here to make that happen. We also have a responsibility to the communities we serve to minimize our environmental impact. We established our recycling program to help you further your sustainability efforts through an easily accessible, viable channel to ensure your materials are recycled.
If you are looking for a new challenge with a growing organization, then the Cope Plastics team may be the place for you. Our family atmosphere, training programs, teamwork, and support all come together to enable our Cope team members to do the best work of their careers.
