We currently have machines ranging from 110- to 350-ton and most use robotic part pickers and semi-automated packaging. We use the latest in mold flow simulation during the development process and can assist in part design and design for manufacturability.

NEW PRODUCT DESIGN
Teel’s team of experts is ready to work with you to design a part and process that is ready for implementation. We follow a well-developed stage gate process within our project management system and use both digital and real world tools and techniques to improve part design. We work with you to do co-engineering as we work through a well established process.  

NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Teel Plastics has created engineering improvements and broken new ground in product development. We were the first to extrude paper-plastic composite materials and pioneered multi-layer fuel line tubing. We invented numerous in-line precision cutting techniques and custom built equipment to manufacture unique parts. Teel takes a collaborative approach to design work by viewing our relationships with customers as partnerships. We welcome customers to come to our facilities to work with us during the design phase. The results are faster problem solving and better communication. Teel has an entire department, including a director and engineers, who focus strictly on new product development.

Teel Plastics Facilities

Teel has four locations in Baraboo, Wisconsin that focus on different areas of our business.

Teel Court

Our corporate headquarters is located on Teel court within the Gateway Business Park. It houses the extrusion lines we use to make medical products, window film cores, water filtration products, and more. It also houses our injection molding machines that manufacture, among other products, our swab sticks and cosmetic items. Teel Plastics moved into this 150,000 square feet manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters in 2007. The facility is built around a hub and spokes concept. This puts operations and administration managers in direct contact with plant personnel at all times. The facility utilizes state-of-the-art technologies which reduce our impact on the environment and create a healthy work environment.

Hitchcock Street

Our facility at Hitchcock Street was Teel’s original location at our founding in 1951. It now houses our Lab Sampling Products (LSP) operations, where we manufacture specialty sample collection bags primarily for various lab uses and food production.

Lynn Avenue

Our Lynn Avenue facility is where our TeeDAS subsidiary is located. This is where Teel compounds a product that is part of a popular pest control system.

Industrial Court

Our Industrial Court facility will focus on our industrial pipe product line. It will house multiple extrusion lines and will run all of our conduit, gas pipe, microduct, and multiduct.
