Our Backstory

Our product line has expanded extensively since 1945. Allen Field was established in 1945 as a customer-focused manufacturer of plastic sock hangers, shoe hangers, small garment accessory hangers, plastic clips, plastic closures and other retail display hardware for the garment and hosiery industry. Since our inception, we’ve approached the manufacturing of our products with customer pain points at the forefront of production. Everything we’ve made has been tailored to fit the needs of consumers, big or small.

That evolution included products such as box clips, plastic box handles, and plastic handles with logos. Our box clip is a convenient way to keep your packaging together. We want your needs met at every junction – our products are versatile enough for you to use in the way that they best fit your needs, whatever they may be.

We take our mission seriously. It’s our goal to assist in the Design and Manufacturing of quality components for customers. Using our capabilities and experience in plastic injection molding, die-casting, metal-stamping, and woodworking, we’ve managed to influence better outcomes and solutions to the problems faced by people all over the world.
