HS Manufacturing Group was born out of the shared vision to reduce the dependency on plastic-coated paper products. The mission eventually expanded to include finding all-encompassing alternatives for silicone and fluorochemical treated paper-products. The primary source of motivation was the large amount of waste generated from single-use paper products.
As the population continues to grow, so does the dependency on convenient plastic-coated paper products and food service items with fluorochemical treated packaging. This trend is only worsened by the fact that much of the waste that consumers produce is not recyclable and will not biodegrade within our lifetime. Many companies have already taken notice and introduced compostable packaging options, but again these items require special high-temperature conditions to compost.
Armed with skills in chemistry, patent and IP development experience, and an unwavering entrepreneurial spirit, the team set out to develop a barrier coating technology platform that would deliver the critical water-, oil- and grease-resistance that manufacturers needed while also setting new standards for sustainability. The team wanted to create an environmentally-safe and non-toxic alternative that they knew would be the first of its kind.
