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 77 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.

Working Together

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!

Community Involvement

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.

"This pandemic has forced us to use technology a lot more than before (zoom, teams, etc). It also taught me to make sure to take care of my team, as well as my own mental health."

"The Purchasing department is filled with some of the most genuine humans I've ever known. Erin is at the head of that, and leads by the example of hard work and honesty in all situations. We're an "all hands on deck" department and there's not really a day that goes by where we're not picking each other up. Love this crew."

"One thing I learned quickly - if you help people solve a problem, you rise to the top of their call list. One of the statements Dwight Cope had on the front of the Cope Catalog was "If We Don't Have It - We'll Help You Find It"."
John Turner, National Account Manager
