Plastifoam fabricates protective foam inserts using EPS, polyethylene and polyurethane foam for the organization and protection of the components of your shipping boxes. We specialize in designing and making custom inserts to meet your specifications, and can also provide corrugated shipping boxes for a complete solution.

Plastifoam will work with you to design, recommend and manufacture the best protective packaging foam inserts based upon:
