ELKHART, IN – Elkhart Plastics, Inc. (Elkhart Plastics) is excited to introduce its newest rotomolded product, the Kong Cooler, as its fourth new product launch of 2017. Designed and manufactured in the United States, Kong Coolers are extremely durable and more affordable than other expedition-ready, premium coolers on the market.

Available in three sizes and a variety of colors, Kong Coolers are feature rich and built to handle the harshest environments. Divided storage protects dry food from ice and beverages; deep well ice retention outlasts the longest excursion; air-tight, sturdy seals keep the cold in and everything else out; rigid, padded handles allow for easier carrying without sloshing; and snap-tight hinges and latch systems provide secure and leak-proof storage.

Made with the same rotomolding technique as the company’s existing line of custom and off-the-shelf plastic products, the rotomolded construction of Kong Coolers provides excellent impact strength and resilience to ensure each cooler’s value and efficiency for years to come.
They are also backed by Elkhart Plastics’ nearly 30 years of expert customer service.

“We saw other premium coolers being imported from the Philippines, China, and Mexico,” said Jack Welter, CEO of Elkhart Plastics. “We knew we could build them better and create jobs here at home in the process.”

“The creation of Kong Coolers and all of our products at Elkhart Plastics put Americans with skills to work. Compare our work and products to the competition, and we know American ingenuity and craftsmanship will win,” Welter said.

Kong Coolers from Elkhart Plastics are designed and manufactured in the United States at the company’s Ridgefield, Wash., location and shipped worldwide. Coolers are available online at

Additional products launched by Elkhart Plastics in 2017 include rotomolded plastic pallets and two types of intermediate bulk containers, The Tuff Stack™ and the Tuff Cube™.
