THE PATH TAKEN

RICCO PLASTICS INC., TOO MANY JUST SUDDELY APPEARED, BUT TO ITS’ OWNERS IT HAS BEEN AN EPIC ADVENTURE OF SORTS TAKING MANY TWISTS AND TURNS WHICH STARTED BACK IN THE LATE 80’S. RICK WAS A MOLD MAKER WITH AN ARTIST EYE FOR THE UNIQUE AND AN UNUSUAL APPROACH TO HIS CRAFT. OFTEN REFERRED TO AS THE “CRITTERMAN” HE TOOLED HIS COMPANY TOWARDS THE CHARACTERS, WIGGETS AND CRITERS WHICH HE BECAME NAMED AFTER. HIS COMPANY MADE MANY OF THE YARD BOTTLE MOLDS SEEN FOR YEARS ON THE VEGAS STRIP AND AMUESMENT INDUSTRY WHEN HE MET UP WITH THE OWNER OF SIPPER PRODUCTS ETC. RICK AND HIS COMPANY MADE COUNTLESS MOLDS FOR THIS COMPANY UNTIL HE PURCHASED IT IN 2001. SHORTLY AFTER SEEING THE LACK OF ABILITY IN THE BLOW MOLDING INDUSTRY TO DELIVERY GOOD QUALITY PRODUCTS FOR A FAIR PRICE AND MEET DELIVERY DATES, THEY PURCHASED THEIR FIRST BEKUM. ONCE HIS PREVIOUS MOLD CUSTOMERS LEARNED HE BOUGHT A BLOW MOLDING MACHINE THE PUSH WAS RELENTLESS. THEY KNEW HIS COMMITMENT TO QUALITY, SERVICE, AND AN UNWAVERING POSITIONING ON CUSTOMER SUPPORT. THE PATH THE COMPANY WAS TO TRAVEL BECAME WELL LIT AND INEVITABLE. ALL THAT WAS LEFT WAS TO APPLY HIS MANTRA “WE ARE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF DOING BUSINESS, WE ARE IN THE BUSINESS OF ASSISTING OUR CUSTOMERS IN GROWING THEIR BUSINESSES, IN THIS WAY WE GROW OURS.” RICCO PLASTICS INC. IS NOW THE PROUD OWNER OF A STATE OF THE ART FACILITY WITH 14 BLOW MOLDING MACHINES, A COMPLETE MOLD SHOP WITH CONCEPUTAL DESIGN AND ENGINEERING CAPABILITIES. THE NON-PRATICAL APPROACH TO PROBLEM SOLVING THE MOST DIFFCUT DESIGNS IS ONE OF OUR STRONGER ABILITIES. THE MAIN EMPHASIS OF THE BLOW MOLDING PROCESSES ARE IN THE CUSTOM DESIGNS AND DESIGNER RESINS SUCH AS EASTMANS LATEST PROJECT, EB062, A PETG RESIN. IF THEY SAY IT CAN’T BE DONE, THEN BRING YOUR PROJECT TO US.
