Plaine Products, a personal care products company on a mission to eliminate single-use plastic packaging, is growing its presence as a disruptor in the personal care industry by establishing its new warehouse and fulfillment center in a newly renovated facility in the Cincinnati suburb of Milford, Ohio. Plaine Products customers return their empty bottles, which are aluminum instead of plastic, back to the company to be cleaned, refilled, and returned to circulation. The new facility will scale the company’s capacity to meet growing demand. With the new space, the company hopes to attract other like-minded businesses to join them in their complex, in an effort to create a hub of sustainability-focused companies.
The company acquired the former Baker Feed & Seed suite of buildings in Old Milford and has steadily worked on renovations, recycling, and repurposing materials along the way. The new space has room for Plaine Products’ showroom and warehouse, as well as other retail-focused businesses. “Baker Feed & Seed was one of the longest running businesses in the community. We’re thrilled to be able to build upon that legacy as we take this suite of buildings into its next chapter,” said Lindsey McCoy, co-founder and CEO of Plaine Products.
Plaine Products, which launched in 2017, has more than quadrupled in size since its inception and has outgrown its original warehouse. The hair- and bodycare products company encourages its customers to be more conscious in their consumerism, reusing and repurposing before purchasing something new and followed this direction in their search for a warehouse large enough to accommodate their rapid growth. “Instead of building new, it was important for us to repurpose, reuse, and then recycle, as we managed this renovation,” McCoy explained. “Part of our growth strategy is to attract companies like ours to this region, so that we can continue to offer options to consumers seeking more eco-friendly products,” she said.
The company, which recently launched two new skincare products to it’s growing portfolio of natural, vegan, cruelty-free shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and cleansers, will relocate its 10 warehouse employees to the new facility by early spring of 2022. In addition to the warehouse, the facility will include a retail shop where customers can purchase Plaine Products and return their empty bottles. McCoy hopes that businesses with a similar focus on community and sustainability will join them on site.
