With over 2.5 million residents, Chicago is the third most populated city in the United States. Situated on the shore of Lake Michigan, Chicago was nearly destroyed after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Residents made a concerted effort to rebuild, and the residual construction boom accelerated the population growth throughout the following decades. During this period, Chicago contributed notably to urban planning and zoning standards, including the development of new construction styles, the design of the steel-framed skyscraper, and the development of the City Beautiful Movement.
In addition to construction, Chicago is an international hub for finance, technology, industry, telecommunications, industry, commerce and transportation.

When it comes to transportation, Polymershapes offer a number of plastic products for automotive, bus and rail, aerospace and recreational vehicles. Today’s cars contain more plastic than ever, as the material is much lighter than traditional metals. Less weight converts to less fuel expended, which is an attractive attribute to customers. But utilizing plastics in cars isn’t just a marketing ploy. The Federal Corporate Average Fuel Economy is making their standards increasingly stringent in requiring car makers to improve the overall efficiency of their vehicles.
Plastics are used in the creation of a multitude of car parts, including fuel tanks, carpet fibers, truck bed liners, mud flaps, touch screens and dashboards. Polymers is dedicated to creating high quality plastics to ensure the longevity of vehicles and their subsequent fuel economy.
Chicago’s financial sector is also reliant on Polymer’s plastics products, as our bullet and blast proof security doors, windows, enclosures and glazing offer superior protection to both the building and its occupants. Our line of Insulgard Security Products offers a number of options for heightened protection, including counterline systems, opaque armor, transaction windows and speak-thru devices.
