Modern Plastics Company Profile

It all started in Bridgeport, Connecticut, in June 1945 (even before "plastic" was a common word), when Joseph C. Carbone opened "Modern Glass Company" - a one-man operation specializing in same-day installation of automobile window glass. A pot-bellied stove generated all the heat that was needed to keep production going through the long, cold New England winters. Commitment to customer service was simple: "Whatever it takes." By the mid-1950s, "Modern Plastics and Glass Inc." took advantage of an exciting new breed of materials known as thermosets and began carrying phenolics, its first group of plastics materials. We continued that trail-blazing spirit in 1961, becoming the first of "the first" distributors of Rohm & Haas' new Plexiglas® acrylic sheet, an inspiring, but relatively unknown, material. It was a decision that would change the company forever.
