In an age when most American manufacturing has closed or moved production overseas, Foremost Plastic Products is celebrating its 50th year in operation this month. The company was founded in 1960 by Peter Muszynski and Bob Hauser as a quality source of injection molded parts in an era where plastic molding started to hit its stride.
Starting out with just two injection molding presses they molded parts for the big names in the pinball industry including Bally, Gottlieb, and Williams. Through the years Foremost’s has grown into a 36,000 square foot faculty that utilizes 12 modern injection molding presses to mold over 20,000,000 parts a year.
By using proprietary modular mold bases, Foremost is able to compete with overseas companies by molding multiple different parts per shot.
Today Foremost is run by Peter’s son Ken Muszynski and still continues his father’s tradition of quality and service.
