In 1888, Ohio born inventor Marvin Stone
patented the spiral-winding process to manufacture the first paper drinking straws. Marvin Stone's legacy is now part of our parent company Precision Products Group, Inc.
The Aardvark paper drinking straw is a direct descendant from Stone's original company. Aardvark straws are the original paper drinking straws, and still American made. Our straws have come a long way since those early days, they’ve been re-invented to become rigid, inflexible, and earth friendly!
Aardvark paper drinking straws are the only paper straws manufactured in the United States. All of our competitors’ straws are made in China or overseas. We manufacture all of our straws at our facilities in Fort Wayne, Indiana. “Made in the USA” is important to us, because we are able to bring you the best quality product faster than our competitors, while providing jobs for your neighbors. What does “Made in the USA” mean for you? It means you can trust our paper straws are the best and the safest for your family or clients.
