When It Comes To Cotton
....We've Got You Covered!

Cotton Bale Packaging

Langston Companies, Inc. is a staple of the cotton industry and remains committed to the continuation of U.S. cotton manufacturing. Over the years, Langston has established trustworthy relationships with supporting the national, state and local Cotton Associations. Our relationships are cultivated sincerely as we work side by side with our gin customers in the field through harvest.

The cotton packaging designed and manufactured by our team, provides the most protective covering available in the market. With the bags being made in our facilities, the quality is controlled from the start with the selection of superior materials that provide effective and economical protection for your ginned cotton.

Often, other packaging options are necessary in the harvesting and manufacturing of cotton. When the need arises for bulk bags or paper sacks, please remember we can meet all your packaging needs.
