Led by Innovation

Our customers know us for our smart, innovative products that make their lives easier and more efficient today, but our design for them goes beyond that. 

  • Our products are built to last many years, and we offer replacement parts to extend useful life.
  • Our products are designed to be recycled at the end of their useful life and can be returned to our Batavia, IL facility as a part of the Suncast Renew Program.
  • We reuse 100% of our scrap resin in our manufacturing process.
  • Our goal is to have all products manufactured with at least 50% recycled materials by 2025.
  • We use only non-hazardous, water-based paint for all of our products.

Inspired by Our People

Our people make everything possible. We foster a diverse community and promoted equal opportunity initiatives to make new things possible for them.

  • We value diversity and promote equal employment opportunities company-wide
  • We pay all of our employees a living wage. On average, our pay is more than 7% higher than market average.
  • More than 70% of our manufacturing employees are BIPOC.
  • We have also committed that 50% of all Executive and Director level positions will be held by women and minorities by 2025.
  • We have partnered with AutonomyWorks to employ 40 adults with autism in a manufacturing role packing parts boxes, ensuring the right parts are in the box 100% of the time.
  • Our apprentice program benefits underserved communities by drawing from community colleges with at least 50% minority student populations. The program combines paid, on-the-job learning with related instruction in technical areas to produce qualified employees prepared for careers that require precision skills. These individuals also graduate college with zero debt.

Sustainable impact doesn’t happen overnight—it comes from improving every day. At Suncast, we are always looking toward the horizon for improving our processes, products, and environment inside our company and out to create meaningful impact. From the way we make our products to the way we encourage our employees, we have set ambitious, measurable goals to create a future that’s brilliant by design.


Leaving Nothing to Waste




By 2025, all our facilities will send zero waste to landfill.

Harnessing the Sun




By the end of 2023, 100% of our plants will be partially solar-powered, and all our distribution facilities will operate using 100% self-generated solar power.

Continuing the Cycle




Our products will be manufactured with 55% recycled materials by 2025. They are also designed to be recycled at their end-of-life. While we are developing a national network of recyclers that will accept all Suncast products by 2025, if local recycling isn’t available, you can return them to our Batavia, IL facility as part of the Suncast Renew Program.

Creating Opportunity for Everyone to Shine




We have committed 50% of all Executive and Director-level positions and board positions to be held by women and minorities by 2025.
