Innovation is our motivation.
From the very beginning, with the introduction of the original POLY-TANK®, we’ve continuously upped the ante in terms of quality, cost effectiveness, and, most importantly, cutting-edge technologies and products. Today, that commitment is evident not only in the superior materials we work with—exclusive PT3™ copolymer polypropylene—but also in the breakthrough innovations we consistently deliver, including the world’s first polypropylene truck body—the PolyBody®—and the world’s first polypropylene underbody toolbox—the PolyBox®.
The UPF difference isn’t just about our facilities, equipment and software. The true difference is in our people. It’s the intangibles that come from exceptional people that provide superior quality, continuous innovation, and an outstanding customer experience that makes UPF different.
