    Historical Context

    Standard Cap & Seal Company, based in Chicago, Illinois, provided disk caps and hood enclosures for glass milk bottles at a time when milk and dairy products were delivered by local dairies. Essentially, Standard Cap & Seal serviced the dairy industry over many decades until such time that neighborhood milk deliveries diminished and consumers began purchasing their milk at the grocery store.

    At that point, in the late 60's, Standard Cap & Seal realigned their product focus to produce paper disposable glass covers for the hospitality industry. Most if not all of the significant hotel/motel chains, as well as independent hotel operators utilized the company's Stancap® glass covers.

    In 1988, Standard Cap and Seal was merged with a newly acquired coaster manufacturer, Rixie Paper Products located in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, which had been in business since 1958, as the leading provider of paper disposable coasters and other paper related products.
