In the 1960's, Ilija Letica had a vision to become a leader in the plastic
packaging industry. This vision was initiated
when Ilija transformed his engineering consulting company into a plastic
injection molding business and began manufacturing a five gallon plastic
container. The five gallon container has since become the industry standard
for a broad array of applications including paint, chemicals and food packaging,
and Letica Corporation has grown into a nationwide manufacturer of paper
and plastic packaging.
Letica Corporation, a family owned company, now has 14 locations across
the United States. In 1996, Letica completed the construction of its new
Advanced Technology Center and corporate headquarters that now support
the three business units of the company.
Rigid Packaging - produces a wide range of rigid containers that are
marketed to a variety of industries and Fortune 500 companies.
Foodservice Packaging - manufactures paper and plastic cups and lids
(including the Maui cup line) for the foodservice industry and supplies
several of the largest quick serve restaurants and convenience store chains
Letica Freightlines - delivers Letica products to customers nationwide
and offers cost reductions and time savings to customers through backhaul
The vision that Ilija Letica had established as an entrepreneur in the
1960's remains embedded in Letica's culture today as evidenced by the
company's vision statement.
