And long before the days of Plas-Ties, the juicers and ice makers purchased overseas were bargain-basement deals. They were also, however, made out of poor quality parts.
Luis Contreras looked at the market and saw an opportunity. He decided that Tie-Matic Twist Tying machines were going to provide reliable and durable packaging solutions. More importantly, he would manufacture these machines in Santa Ana, California.
Contreras’ machines proved that high-quality parts and skilled manufacturing from the US were the keys to effective consumer packaging solutions.
Plas-Ties: Growing Machines for a Growing Industry
Twist tying machines have been our forte for decades. From the birth of the Tie-Matic Mark III to the re-designed Tie-Matic HD, we continued to meet customers’ requests. And the requests for larger machines to accommodate ever-growing product lines kept coming in.
From then on, Plas-Ties was eager to design machines that would fit the needs of all their customers. The XL2 and XL-4 twist tying machines tackled the larger industrial markets. Hoses, cord sets, cables, gift baskets, plants… You name it, we were twist tying it.
Plas-Ties is evolving and innovating by bringing automation to consumer packaging with the programmable XLS machine. Capable of tying delicate, loose, fast, and variable ties, the XLS marks a new era for Plas-Ties. This machine is our latest solution as we continually discover new ways to assist companies with their out-of-the-box packaging requirements.
Plas-Ties is proud to celebrate more than 50 years of serving consumer packaging customers in the US and worldwide. We are also proud of our reputation as the world’s top manufacturer of high-quality twist tying machinery.
We have a proud tradition of making our machines in the USA. Also, we stand by each one of our machines and the quality that we produce. Our headquarters is located in the city of Tustin, in the heart of Orange County, California.
