More Information: Company Background
The history of Micro Plastics is a story of how a company that started with one machine in the founder’s garage, grew to become the largest
manufacture of threaded nylon fasteners in the world.
In 1960 Roy Hill, the company founder, worked for General Electric Company’s plastics division. At that time G.E. was the largest manufacturer
of plastic parts in the world. But they weren’t particularly good at small parts. In that early stage of the plastics industry, Mr. Hill saw an
opportunity in the world of small parts.
Micro Plastics was born in his garage in 1961, in Des Plaines, Illinois, with one small molding machine. Soon several more small machines
were added. The fledgling company catered to customers that needed small plastics parts made to their specifications. The business soon outgrew
the garage, and in the next few years, went through a series of moves from a 1500 sq. ft building, to 5,000 sq. ft, and then to 10, 000 sq. ft.
The company built its own molds, and developed a reputation of delivering small, quality parts at a reasonable cost.
In 1975, the company moved to Arkansas and built a new plant. Starting with only 15 employees, the company began to develop its own product
line in addition to its custom molding business. Growth accelerated in Arkansas, and by 1980, the company employed more than 100 employees.
Today, the company has over 400 employees, and has become the largest manufacturer of threaded nylon fasteners in the world. Although most of
our parts are sold in the US, we export to many countries in Europe and also the far- east. We produce over 100 millions parts per month and
maintain an inventory of over 300 million parts. Our manufacturing process is clean and non-polluting.
At any time, you are not far from a Micro Plastics’ product. Applications include appliances, electronics, computers, and many industrial
products. Our parts have been in the space shuttle, the Pershing missile, the Boeing 777 aircraft, and in less glamorous applications like the
Rival Crock-pot and the Poulan weed-eater. You can find our parts in the local Wal-Mart or the hardware store. The diversity of our applications
has given us stability which is shared with our employees.
In addition to sharing our past, we would like to share our vision of the future with you as well. Our goal is to become the best in world at
what we do, and to truly achieve excellence in our products and our service to our customers. We want to continue to grow and increase our global
presence. As part of this, we want every employee to be given the tools and have the opportunity to fully reach their own potential. We are
proud to be a member of the twin-lake community!!
