Dou­ble H Man­u­fac­tur­ing began as fam­i­ly-owned pro­file extru­sion man­u­fac­tur­er in Warmin­ster, Penn­syl­va­nia. In 1998, Dou­ble H opened its sec­ond facil­i­ty in Mar­i­on, IN and built the now 100,000 sq. ft. facil­i­ty they oper­ate out of today. 

Dou­ble H has a long his­to­ry of inno­va­tion. Har­ry Harp found­ed Dou­ble H Plas­tics in 1960, and through an extru­sion process in his base­ment, he invent­ed the first plas­tic cock­tail drink­ing straw. Years lat­er, while Harp was hos­pi­tal­ized for a back prob­lem, he invent­ed the flex straw” which pro­vid­ed nec­es­sary flex­i­bil­i­ty in the drink­ing straw. After his hos­pi­tal­iza­tion, Harp began man­u­fac­tur­ing dis­pen­stirs” (lit­tle plas­tic tubes) for the med­ical industry. 

Today, Dou­ble H has expand­ed to pail mold­ing and print­ing, IML capa­bil­i­ty, paper­board print­ing, and rigid cup form­ing. Most rec­og­niz­ably, Dou­ble H man­u­fac­tures the plas­tic lids we find on Quak­er Oats, Haa­gen-Dazs, Kirk­land, and Red Mill prod­ucts, etc. 

Dou­ble H con­tin­ues to pri­or­i­tize inno­va­tion and entre­pre­neuri­al­ism. Dou­ble H is excit­ed to see how the plas­tic indus­try con­tin­ues to evolve and how they can expand into emerg­ing technologies.
