In 1956, The Rodon Group was founded with just four presses, 5,000 square feet of space, and a big vision. Today, as we celebrate our 65th anniversary, we do so as one of the largest family-owned and operated plastic injection molders in the country. With 128 presses, we serve clients in a wide range of industries with innovative manufacturing solutions, and we look forward to doing so for many years to come.
The Rodon Group’s History
The Rodon Group was founded by Irving Glickman in 1956 while he was still working with ELGO Rubber. This small, part-time company grew steadily with Glickman's strategic investments in equipment and other additions. He was passionate about cost-effective manufacturing materials and methods, and that thoughtful planning helped get the company off the ground and growing as ELGO Rubber eventually closed.
Today, The Rodon Group is one of the largest family-owned and operated plastic injection molding companies in the United States, with 250,000 square feet of manufacturing space and a robot at every press. We're ISO 9001:2015 certified with a 99.92% quality parts rating, and we guarantee our molds for the life of your project. From design to toolmaking to materials selection, we're here to take your project from start to finish.
What Sets Rodon Apart
Our years of plastic injection molding experience is just the beginning. Irving Glickman's knowledge and foresight laid the foundation for success, which has been driven by the key values that were established in the earliest days and continue to serve as our guiding principles:
- We Treat Our Employees Well: Having third-generation employees on our team is no accident. We value our team members and know they're the backbone of the company. As a result, we have high employee retention and a team that's deeply invested in our clients and the work we do.
- We Offer Fair Prices for Our Customers: Part of our mission is to make sure you have the cost-effective solutions you need to run your business. We take pride in customizing a solution that helps you save time and money.
- We Re-Invest Our Profits in Talent and Equipment: Staying at the top of the industry means staying on top of the latest innovations and ensuring we attract the best professionals to work with us. Our company grows because we're willing to invest in our people, their education, and the equipment they use every day.
- We Focus on Being a Solution for the Customer—Never a Problem: We're your partner for your projects. We listen to your goals and develop a plan that suits you, managing any challenges as they arise to ensure the process is seamless for you. It's our job to make your business simpler, not more challenging.
Over the decades, we've worked with a variety of industries and applications, including medical, food and beverage, window and door components, and construction with SillDry, a patented window protection line co-invented by our own Joel Glickman. As a proud U.S. manufacturer, we've always promoted domestic manufacturing, and we're active members of both American Made Matters and the Made in America Movement to help educate people about the benefits of buying American-made products. The future of U.S. manufacturing is bright, and we're excited to be a part of it.
Our long history and extensive experience has prepared us for the next 65 years and beyond. Our turnkey manufacturing solutions are backed by our commitment to quality and excellent customer service, and we look forward to helping you with your high-volume production project as we celebrate our 65th anniversary.
