Organized 31 years ago, Hawk Plastics started production in October of 1985 in the former Beaunit building on Plant Road. Now, 30 years later, by the grace of God, the Hawk is still flying. One of the oldest American owned PVC pipe producers in the USA, Hawk Plastics has operated with the same name for its total existence. With as many as 40 employees to man the 3 shift operation Hawk has maintained a steady workforce with 24-hour working days through 4 1/2 years of economic slowdown. Hawk received awards from the State of Alabama for 7 years with no lost time accidents; again by the grace of God.
Hawk manufactures PVC plastic sewer pipe with Integral Bell Gasketed joints and specializes in standard and custom PVC perforated pipe. Hawk produces other PVC extrusions, custom cylinders, core tubes and is the exclusive U.S. Manufacturer of patented molded plastic Ragglesticks. Marketed and sold by RAGGLESTICK Packaging, Ragglesticks are used to create compactness and stability in packaging and storing cylindrical objects such as pipe, tube, rolls, drums and barrels. Ragglesticks was the invention of the founders of Hawk Plastics.
