Our exclusive vertically integrated manufacturing process creates high-performance polyethylene products through our unique 3-layer construction. This high strength, 3-ply film structure adds strength and flexibility to our products which maximizes performance in various polymers.Through our exclusive, vertically integrated manufacturing process, we are able to add recycled material into the core of our 3-layer film. The outside two layers are made of high-strength virgin LDPE plastic that surrounds the inner core which is made up of up to 70% post-consumer recycled plastic. This high strength, 3-ply film structure adds strength and flexibility to our products which maximizes performance in various polymers. Why 3-Layer & Not Mono-Layer? Improves tear strength, flexibility, and performance. Uses high amounts of PostConsumerRecycling, which is better for reducing carbon footprint. Provides opportunities for virgin material reduction. Offers various degrees of surface performance. We pride ourselves in offering expansive product lines and custom-engineered solutions to meet the expectations of our customers and the industries we serve.

Petoskey Plastics, the parent company of Greencore® Products, is a company committed to providing the highest quality products using innovative sustainable manufacturing practices.

Hartford City, IN is the location of our plastic film recycling plant that recycles approximately 3 million pounds of post-consumer plastic film every month. This recycling facility provides post-consumer recycled (PCR) resin made from collected plastic bags, film, and stretch film that has been diverted from landfills. Petoskey Plastics then uses this PCR resin to produce new eco-friendly plastic bags and film products, much of which goes into the Greencore® product line.
