Birmingham Plastics

Birmingham, Alabama is the most populated city in the state. Founded during the post-Civil War reconstruction era, the city was a primary industrial hub of the southern United States. From iron and steel manufacturing to railroad car production, the incredible growth from 1881 to 1920 earned Birmingham the nicknames “The Magic City” and “The Pittsburgh of the South.” Towards the latter half of the twentieth century, the economy diversified from manufacturing to banking, telecommunications, medical care, insurance, higher education and transportation. Now, Birmingham ranks as one of the largest banking centers in the nation.

Polymershapes has been providing exceptional plastic products for over seventy years, and our stocking facility in The Magic City makes us a premier provider of Birmingham plastics. With such a large banking industry comes demand for bulletproof security windows, doors, enclosures and glazing. And at Polymershapes, we provide the best in the business.
