Rotomolding Plastics For The Future.
Dura-Cast was founded in 1956 to produce durable plastic products using a manufacturing process known as rotomolding. Specialized rotomolding machines provide for multi-axis ‘rotational molding’ which is the process of forming a hollow, plastic container with an even wall thickness in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.
Their first polyethylene plastic products were rotomolded for the local cattle industry. With the plant centrally located in Lake Wales, Florida, Dura-Cast produced lick feeders and feed troughs through the mid 1980’s. In 1987, Bruce Orcutt, the current owner, acquired the company and expanded the company product line as they started rotomolding polyethylene water and holding tanks for Boston Whaler and Sea Ray boat builders.
Dura-Cast grew and quickly became known by the Florida boatbuilding industry for its quality products and customer responsiveness. Since those early days, most of the well-known boat and yacht builders located in the southeast use Dura-Cast rotomolded water and holding tanks. Dura-Cast is proud to celebrate a quarter century of growth under the guidance of the Orcutt family.
As Dura-Cast became known as a rotomolder of plastic products, other Florida-based companies approached the company to provide plastic products for their needs. This required the company to expand its expertise and the number of rotomolding machines. These specialized rotomolding machines provide for multi-axis ‘rotational molding’ and were acquired and installed to meet the increased demand for standard Dura-Cast products and the growing custom products division.
Dura-Cast takes pride in working with numerous clients throughout the United States and abroad to ensure that their concepts are brought to reality. Key personnel have been added to expand Dura-Cast’s existing rotomolding expertise and the combined knowledge and dedication they bring will ensure a quality, rotomolded product that will last. Dura-Cast can provide a single, unique custom product or several hundred or thousands of the identical products – all meeting the same quality and production standards they have built their reputation on. If you need a poly-plastic product in a custom or unique shape or size, you should definitely consider a Dura-Cast rotomolded plastic product.
