A History of Excellence
Since our company’s inception in 1967, Bamberger Polymers has been dedicated to providing high-quality resins to fuel the needs of custom and proprietary manufacturers, compounders, injection molders, blow molders, and extruders. Throughout the years, we have expanded from a small regional plastics reseller in the US to a worldwide distributor with sales and distribution centers throughout North America, South America, Central America, and Europe. Overall, we now facilitate more than $1.35 billion in resin sales annually. We plan to continue our journey for many years to come so we can provide the best materials to our customers all over the world.
