Central Plastics Inc. was founded more than 50 years ago in 1968, by Chester Houghton and his two partners.
CPI started out with two extruders and three employees in less than 5,000 square feet of production and warehousing space.
CPI now occupies over 210,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing with 47 main extrusion machines and 21 co-extruders. We are in operation twenty-four hours a day, five days a week, with over 200 employees.
The Houghton family still owns and operates all facets of the business, which is still in the same location where it all began in 1968, right in the "Heart of Kansas."
