LONG BRANCH, NJ - 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Monmouth Rubber and Plastics Corp. (MRPC) - a leading US manufacturer of closed-cell sponge rubber and plastic foam buns. All manufacturing is done at its fully equipped ISO certified plant in Long Branch, N.J.
For half a century, MRPC has worked diligently to develop and retain its leadership role as "the experts" in rubber and plastics manufacturing - globally helping OEMs and Fabricators develop and solve problems to ensure they have the right materials to meet the requirements of the application. Its product development and improvement program enables OEMs and Fabricators, in turn, the ability to offer their own customers effective solutions that are hard to obtain elsewhere.
MRPC attributes its success to having one of the most comprehensive technical libraries in the industry, which is comprised of the latest expert information based on 50 years of experience with cellular materials. It also provides a free technical support program called "Ask John" which provides customers (and potential customers) FREE technical information and guidance on a multitude of rubber and plastic questions and problems. This complimentary service offers real value to OEMs and Fabricators because it allows them to obtain expert advice along with access to a comprehensive technical library at their fingertips at no cost.
When asked what contributed to the 50 year longevity of the company, MRPC President/COO John Bonforte, Jr. says, "We supply products and solve problems for customers on a global scale. While there are other companies that supply products similar to ours, none have a 'people team' more devoted than ours. When it comes to the quality of our people and the extra effort they give when servicing customers' needs - we excel. When you contact any member of our team, I assure you they will put forth a special effort to make your business experience a productive and satisfying one."
"It is with pride that I can announce that Monmouth Rubber & Plastics is celebrating its 50th anniversary. I started the company in 1964 at the age of 23 in my uncle's cellar in Long Branch, NJ. 50 years later, Monmouth has grown to be one of the top three manufacturers of closed cell rubber & plastic foam in the United States. The success of the company has far exceeded the dreams I had back then," says founder and General Manager John Bonforte Sr. "Monmouth Rubber is a family-owned and operated business. Incorporating our family values into our daily operations helps us stay focused on our customers and products, and not just our financial success. Our loyal customers, quality suppliers and dedicated employees are what allow us to continue to grow. Under the current leadership of my son, John Jr., our goal remains to continue to serve our customers by supplying the highest quality products and customer service for the next 50 years."
