Plastatech® Engineering, Ltd. is a responsive, close-knit family-owned and operated business, dedicated to ensuring the success of our customers by providing the highest quality calendered and PVC-based films, knitted fabrics, and laminates.
In 1988, entrepreneur John R. Burt (the founder of the Duro-Last® single-ply roofing system) created a new business venture: Plastatech Engineering, Ltd. The intent of this new company was to provide a world class roofing membrane for the Duro-Last roofing system. Under the leadership of John's daughter, Kathy L. Allen, a talented team of professionals experienced in PVC formulation and production was assembled. A state-of-the-art calendering, knitting, laminating, and coating facility was then built in Saginaw, Michigan.
From those beginnings, Plastatech's reputation for quality craftsmanship has spread nationwide. The high performance of the single-ply membrane that Plastatech supplies to Duro-Last has helped the Duro-Last roofing system become known as the "World's Best Roof"®.
Using the expertise gained in manufacturing exposed membranes, Plastatech has expanded its product lines to include architectural fabrics and both reinforced and non-reinforced geomembranes.
