Thankful for Our Community

About Us

Our world has so much diversity and so much to offer. As we progress, it seems everything aggregates and consolidates over time. Specifically, with businesses, many large corporations become the only option for an industry. Enter the importance of supporting local businesses. Thornton Plastics is based in Salt Lake City, Utah and has been since 1948. Back in the day, we specialized in various injection-molded, plastic items such as spoons, game pieces, and bowls; and more recently, Thornton Plastics specializes in small, snap-on cap plastic vials and containers.

We welcome any and all local customers to come in so we can get to know you and your business (and save you shipping costs, too)! Of course, for anyone who is out of state or international, we welcome you to stop by if you’re ever in the neighborhood.

Supporting Local Businesses

By supporting local businesses, we can help ensure economic stability as well as maintain the diverse community around us. We offer more uniquely specialized experiences and products that larger corporations simply can’t offer. From customized orders, to exceptional customer service, there is no end to the benefits of maintaining local businesses.

Additionally, we can all enjoy a sense of pride and connection to our community when supporting local businesses, preventing monopolies and encouraging healthy competition in our microclimate. According to the American Independent Business Alliance, for every $100 spent at a local business, $68 stays in the community, compared to only $43 for non-local businesses. Investing in your local community is investing in yourself, your family, and your business.

We are thankful for your continued support, our community, and our employees.

Happy Holidays!
