Our History

The history of Plastic Products goes back to the “adolescent” period of injection molding technology. Founder Willard “Smitty” Smith was a tool maker at Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing (3M) in St Paul when he decided to venture out and form his own tool and die shop in Lindstrom, MN in 1957. He named it Smith Metal Products. To better serve his key customer, 3M, an injection molding press along with contract assembly of molded parts was added in 1962, thus giving birth to Plastic Products Company, Inc. (PPC).  Several new customers and presses were added into the following decade.
