About Us Olsonite Toilet Seats
In the 1950s, plastic became a desirable and more attainable alternative to wood toilet seats. Olsonite had a monopoly on all-plastic toilet seats for almost a decade and garnered even more sales as the price of plastic dropped.
In order to remain competitive in the toilet seat market, Bemis worked to create their own all-plastic toilet seat and became a fierce competitor to Olsonite. The creation of all-plastic seats opened the door for Bemis Manufacturing Company to begin injection molding products which today is a major part of the Contract Division of the company.
Bemis acquired Olsonite in 2005. The brand is primarily found in the wholesale segment.
