Xtrudex has the capability to manufacture a wide range of custom extruded and molded plastic and rubber products. Co-Ex and Tri-plex Extruding, Wire Coating, and in-line cutting are just some of our specialties. Post extrusion fabrication, overmolding, and insert molding with vertical and horizontal injection presses allow us to make some very unique assemblies. We also manufacture small molded plastic and TPE parts on our horizontal injection presses.

How we started
Our founder, Dan Martinson, has a long track record of designing and manufacturing innovative consumer and industrial products. His most successful example is the Gear Tie Reusable Rubber Twist Tie. After struggling to strap a duffle bag to an ATV rack with a bungee cord, Dan decided to invent something new. Dan's background is in plastics and rubber, so the idea of extruding rubber onto a bendable wire wasn’t much of a stretch. Today, we're proud to say that Gear Ties are sold by leading retailers all over the world and are still manufactured here at our plant in the US.
Over the past 4.5 years, Dan and his business partners been working on a new product called the TRU Zip™ Waterproof Zipper which we also manufacture here in Minnesota. TRU Zip™ was officially released to the market this past winter and won several awards including Outdoor Retailer’s Best in Show!
