MFG Tray is a division of Molded Fiber Glass Companies (MFG), a world leader in reinforced polyester composites.
Molded Fiber Glass Tray Company (MFG Tray Company) was founded in 1952 in Linesville, Pennsylvania just four years after Robert Morrison founded the parent company in Ashtabula, Ohio, and became the first manufacturer to mass-produce commercial products using polyester resins and fiber glass reinforcements. Marketed under the Toteline™ brand name, MFG Tray Company’s products quickly gained acceptance in a variety of industrial and food service applications thanks to the outstanding performance benefits and durability of composite construction. Several products such as starch trays and dough boxes evolved into standard designs expressly for specific applications, while others such as the company’s popular 780 Series nest-and-stack designs are used in an array of material handling operations.
As the popularity of composites continued to grow, MFG Tray Company added new designs and sizes to its extensive line of trays, flats and containers, and also developed proprietary products for specialized applications, including specially formulated Fiberstat ESD-safe material handling products for the electronics industry, vial trays and gel cap drying trays for the pharmaceutical industry, and popular wash boxes for an array of industrial processing applications.
Today MFG Tray Company continues to offer both specialized and multi-purpose material handling products for food service, confectionery, pharmaceutical, electronics and industrial applications, and continues to work with end-users in the development of custom products to solve unique material handling, processing and storage needs. The strength, stability, versatility and durability of composite materials continue to reinforce the fact that the material really does matter in material handling.
