History of Badger Plug:
In a small brick building on the banks for the Fox River in Appleton, WI, Badger Plug began producing wood core plugs in 1931. It was a time when many people in rural Wisconsin didn’t have electricity, and we relied on the river to provide power for our industrial machines as they turned birch logs into wood core plugs for the paper industry.

Things have changed since then, and we have grown – becoming one of the leading innovators in the industry and increasing our core offerings to include an array of roll protection, suspension and other product protections.

Built Badger Tough

Since 1931, Badger Plug has been creating the strongest roll protection and suspension solutions - or, as we say, solutions that are Badger Tough. What does it mean to be Badger Tough?
Never Compromise on Quality
Always Provide Maximum Protection
Never Stop Innovating
Always Focus on Adding Value
