PFC Has Been Manufacturing Cases in The U.S.A. For Over 50 Years


PFC has been making cases for over 50 years, and we do everything right here in the U.S.A. – mold design, engineering, and manufacturing.  PFC is Headquartered in a 28,800 square foot office and manufacturing facility in Woodbridge, CT.  In 1994, PFC opened our second plant in Massillon, Ohio adding 30,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space. In 2020, our Ohio facility expanded adding an additional 10,000 square feet of warehouse space, bringing their footprint to 40,000 square feet.

Establishing A Brand

In 1966, Peter Schurman founded The Plastic Forming Company in Woodbridge, Connecticut. Initially, PFC focused on machinery development and specialty custom blow molding. In 1969, PFC entered the double-wall blow molded carrying case business using a new process developed by Schurman.

For the following decade, and driven by continuous product and process improvements, PFC-type cases gained wide acceptance owing to their unique combination of extreme durability, product protection, styling freedom, and moderate cost. The market and the Company grew rapidly as these cases became the preferred method to package a wide variety of consumer and industrial products.

In the early 1980s, PFC developed a proprietary line of cases to package the broad array of products sold by small and medium-sized manufacturers and distributors. Among the many products now packaged in PFC cases are professional hand and power tools, portable test instruments and meters, microscopes, surveying transits and other optical devices, medical instruments, educational kits, and more. To complement its proprietary line of cases, PFC also manufactures foam and custom blow molded inserts and thermoformed inserts and trays.

The Plastic Forming Company is a proud member of the Made in America Movement.
