Company description

Today's undisputed world leader in the manufacture of foam cups began as Dart Manufacturing Company in 1937 in Mason, Michigan. After experimenting, in the late 1950's, with molding expandable polystyrene, the company began development of a full line of high quality single-use food service products. Now, operating as Dart Container Corp., they employ over 5,000 people in plants throughout the U.S. They also manufacture in 5 other countries and distribute worldwide. Dart starts the process by making its own raw materials, builds the machinery to make all their products and finishes by delivering in their own trucks. In addition to foam cups, products now on the market include lids, containers, dinnerware, and cutlery. They are continuing to introduce new products to meet the needs of consumers. Dart Container Corp. is committed to informing government, customers, and the public of the facts about polystyrene foam. They are at the forefront in the development of recycling solutions. They have recycling centers and programs and an environmental hot line that provides facts about Dart foam products. They have received numerous honors and awards for their environmental efforts. Major competitors of Dart Container are Smurfit-Stone Container, Sweeheart Cup and Tenneco.
