Globe Plastics, Inc. was established on October 15, 1958 in Pomona, California by Roy and Marion Cramer. Roy was a retired engineer at General Dynamics. From that humble beginning Globe started a proprietary line of transistor pads that offered a low cost solution to problems associated with semi-conductor production handling and assembly. Globe manufactured its own tooling and became a leader in the electronics industry for many years. As the company's expertise grew in advanced engineering materials, Globe began compression and injection molding high strength composites for the aerospace/defense industry. In December, 1979, Globe purchased the Encapsulation Cup line from Polytop Corporation, located in Fullerton, CA. Then in 1982 Globe purchased the Encapsulation line from MG Precision Products of South El Monte, CA. Globe then had two proprietary lines consisting of thermoset and thermoplastic transistor pads and compression and transfer molded Encapsulation cups. In 1988 the company was acquired by entrepreneurs Nywood Wu and Clifton Chang to expand their existing base of defense based contract manufacturers. Being a minority owned composite molding firm, Globe was able to gain a larger share of the aerospace/defense industry. A position we still hold, 60 years later. In 1992, after the dramatic defense downturn, Globe began compression molding highly productive SMC and BMC materials to supply Globe Composites components for the sound and lighting industries. These materials and our processes proved to be far superior and a better value than existing thermoplastics and die cast aluminum components for the sound and lighting industries so Globe started penetrating these markets also. Since that time we have continued to expand our manufacturing capabilities, quality systems and process expertise. In 2004 we began a joint venture with Moldzen Precision in Dong Guan, China to form Globe Composites Far East where we have manufactured tooling for several years. We specialize in providing superior value in thermoset and thermoplastic molding of parts ranging in size from the head of a pin to a truck hood and anywhere in between. In 2008 Globe attained ISO 9001:2008 status and since then Globe has become AS 9100C certified firm and is listed on the Oasis database to give our customers and potential customers confidence relating to our quality, consistency and reliability.
