The shipping totes are available in a wide variety of colors and sizes, and are perfect for work in process (WIP) needs for poultry and other food processing companies.

Our Story

In 1993 Charles and Barbara Wilson started Plasco Designs in Texarkana, Arkansas, manufacturing the first generation of work in process plastic totes for the food processing industry. Working alongside Charles and Barbara, their Daughter and son in law DeAnn and Reggie Goins, developed a plastic pallet compatible with Plasco’s work in process totes to give customers the highest level of efficiency, safety, and sanitation of any tote system. In 1999 Reggie and DeAnn started Goins Plastic Source (GPS) in Texarkana, Arkansas. In addition to plastic pallets, GPS began manufacturing standardized portion control trays for the food processing industry.

 

When Charles passed away in 2001, and Barbara retired in 2003, Reggie and DeAnn took over their management of Plasco Designs and combined the customer service department with that of GPS. The companies have both grown steadily. Plasco continuously improves their designs in order to create what is now the sturdiest and most sanitary work in process tote on the market. GPS branched out into custom thermoforming. They now handle the complete process of computer design, prototyping, mold milling, and production, all in house. The vertical integration allowed GPS the ability to get their customers products to market quicker and at a lower cost than their competitors.

Reggie and DeAnn have three sons that grew up around the business. They spent summers working in the factory and job shadowing. After each son graduated from college they began working alongside their parents. In 2016 their oldest son, Michael, joined the business and is the inventory/purchasing manager. He also manages QC, Food Safety and annual SQF certification. In 2018 their youngest son, Charlie, joined the company as the sales manager. In 2019 after 2 years of fundraising and traveling what a mission team their middle son, Joh David, joined the business as controller.
