About Us


For over 50 years, DuraPlas, Inc. and its subsidiaries, Maxi-Lift, Inc and Southwest Agri-Plastics, Inc, have been developing new and innovative plastic products for a variety of industries and companies around the world. From agricultural and industrial elevator buckets to swine and poultry flooring systems, our products help our customers replace wood, metal, and wire to make their jobs easier and more efficient.

All of the products have one thing in common; we make it easier for our customers to do business”, says Victor “Beaude” Sahm III, CEO of DuraPlas, Inc.

In 2017, DuraPlas, Inc saw an opportunity to innovate and develop a product line for the oil and gas industry. After seeing how much wood is transported, used, and wasted on a single pipeline job, it was obvious we could create a solution for this industry. After launching our first generation of pipe stands, we quickly learned how tough the oil and gas industry is and what was needed to be successful in this space. Our persistence and constant drive to innovate, enabled us to develop the TUFFSTAND product line; the strongest and safest plastic pipe stands known to market.

Our subsidiary companies, Maxi-Lift, Inc and Southwest Agri-Plastics, Inc are responsible for providing plastic solutions for several other industries. Maxi-Lift, Inc manufactures elevator buckets and related conveying components for agricultural and industrial applications. These products are involved in the transportation and handling of commodities around the world. Southwest Agri-Plastics, Inc manufactures many agricultural products including plastic swine and poultry flooring systems, egg transport systems, and feed supplement tubs for livestock. More information on these products can be found at their websites, www.maxilift.com and www.swapinc.com.

All our TuffStands and many other products are manufactured in our 200,000 square foot headquarters facility in Dallas, Texas. We incorporate state of the art injection molding equipment, economies of scale, 50 plus years of experience, and a deep understanding of plastics to create value for our customers.
