Plasticor Celebrates their 30th Anniversary, the 2nd Generation officially assumes Control
On May 29th, 1984 Joseph Di Guida started what would be his greatest and most rewarding adventures of his life: He founded Plasticor. For thirty years, Plasticor has maintained its leadership in plastic injection molding, mold making and turnkey services. As the company started to reach maturity, Joseph brought on his adult children one by one once they finished their education.
As of May 30th, 2014, Rob, Sonjali and Nodin Di Guida will assume control over every detail in the operation of Plasticor inc. Having been trained from the ground up, the second generation has acquired the necessary leadership tools to lead the company into new heights. With the same dedication to quality, customer service and product excellence, Plasticor is continuously committed to their promise of molding your plastic needs, with precision.
“It was important for me to have my children know the business inside out before assuming control” comments owner and founder Joseph Di Guida. “They spent the first few years learning the manufacturing process, understanding the plastic industry before taking on a more strategic role once they were ready. Once they paid their dues, and showed the proper leadership, character and vision, we went ahead with our succession plans”. The succession plan took approximately 5 years, and once the company hit the thirtieth year, the next generation had already been a part of the company for over 15 years. “I think it’s time for them to put their stamp on Plasticor, we are proud of where we are now, but I’m really happy with their drive, ambition and determination to improve and grow the business even further. “It was time for me to hand over the reins and let them flourish while taking a more advisory role. This being said they have my complete confidence, and I’m excited about the future or our business”.
Joseph Di Guida, will now chair a special advisory board to the next generation. The board consists of seasoned business professionals and carefully selected confidants whom are geared towards expansion and technological advancements.
