About Molded Fiber Glass Tray Company

Molded Fiber Glass Tray (MFG Tray) is a leading manufacturer of high-strength, glass-reinforced composite containers, trays, boxes, flats, and totes for material handling. Many of our loyal customers are in some stage of the pharmaceutical supply chain.

As we often say, “The material matters in material handling.” In no place is this statement more true than in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. To ensure our products work for our customers, we’ll often develop custom solutions for their specific material-handling challenges if a standard product doesn’t meet their requirements. MFG Tray products bring an array of performance differentials to material handling applications such as:

  1. Corrosion & Rust Resistance
    Our glass-reinforced composite products offer a myriad of advantages over their stainless steel counterparts. One of the most significant is their corrosion and rust resistance. Further, our trays and containers can withstand exposure to harsh chemicals, including alkaline solutions within the pH range of 3.0 to 12.0, detergents, and mild acids. In addition, our composite products are highly resistant to cutting oils, grease, and radiation.
  2. Customizability
    MFG Tray prides itself on its extensive selection of gel cap drying trays, deep storage trays, vial trays, and sterilization trays for the pharmaceutical industry. However, we also know that companies occasionally have specific needs. So, whether you’re a pharmaceutical manufacturer or chemical engineer, we can tailor a solution to your particular processing challenges and applications.
  3. Dimensional Stability
    Our pharmaceutical and biotech trays retain their original shape and structural integrity even when met with rigorous material handling processes and harsh environments. Our composite material withstands heavy loads without sagging, making it the ideal choice for machine applications. From humid and arid to hot and cold conditions, MFG Tray’s products will meet and exceed the challenges of the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.
  4. Modifiability
    All across the globe, pharmaceutical and biotech companies use our standard material handling trays. In the case where they need a simple change to a set of our standard products, we’re here from them. We have various modification options, such as adding drain holes, slots, grommets, or grooves, to a specific piece of equipment.
  5. Reliability
    A product lifecycle in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries is fast-paced, but MFG Tray’s products can keep up. We’ve received numerous reports of clients using our products for up to 15 years without replacing them. This reliability ultimately yields a high return on investment for you and your company.
  6. Stackability
    The space in a lab or manufacturing plant can get tight between engineers, researchers, and manufacturers. With this issue in mind, MFG Tray built our products to stack, even under heavy weight. Not only will they not bend or sag, but they’ll also nest when empty, saving you and your team more room to work efficiently.
  7. Strength
    Thanks to their composite design, MFG Tray’s products offer unrivaled strength and weight-carrying capacity. In fact, their strength-to-weight ratio exceeds that of aluminum or steel. MFG Tray also has various standard products that can handle up to 800+ pounds. Accordingly, if you’re moving heavy materials, our trays are essential to your material handling process.
  8. Temperature Resistant
    The manufacturing process requires equipment to be temperature resistant, which is why we made it a top priority to ensure our composite products can handle cold and hot extremes. In fact, our composite material is well suited to handle continuous temperatures ranging from -60° to 250° F (-51° to 121° C) and intermittent temperatures up to 300° F.
  9. User-Friendly and Light
    Our pharmaceutical and biotech trays are ideal for machine integration. However, we also optimized the design to be super ergonomic for people to move them easily and efficiently. Moreover, if you opt for the Ultra-Lite option, they’re 40% lighter than standard fiberglass products and maintain the same strength and durability.
