Our Company

Poly-Wood, Inc. is an organization led by entrepreneurs guided by a passion to create and deliver intelligently designed outdoor performance furnishings that fundamentally improve the lives of consumers and encourage stewardship, favorably impacting future generations.

What happens to all the milk jugs that have been recycled throughout the years? In 1990, in a garage in Northern Indiana, an innovative idea was taking shape. High school friends noted the high performance characteristics of plastic and its use in outdoor applications. Doug Rassi (President) and Mark Phillabaum (Sales), founders and owners of Poly-Wood, Inc., discovered they could extrude recycled milk jugs into plastic lumber. That lumber could then be used to design and build outdoor furniture with fundamental performance qualities.

Since 1990, Poly-Wood has been the leader in developing casual outdoor furniture with plastic lumber. Today Poly-Wood occupies over 200,000 square feet of manufacturing space. Our plastic lumber extrusion process is modern and efficient. We utilize 3D design, CNC fabrication and lean manufacturing techniques. Poly-Wood now offers thousands of SKUs and ships a majority of its furniture within three days. Over the years our customers have rewarded us with increased sales because our products perform well over time and are a fantastic value. We remain committed to using the most effective manufacturing techniques, eliminating waste and delivering what our customers expect. Poly-Wood’s commitment to quality allows for many relaxing seasons at the beach, in the yard, or on your patio. Sit back, relax and forget about it.
