Legacy, Leadership, and Customer Commitment:
The Modern Plastics Story

Bing J. Carbone, President

As I reflect on my 45-year journey at Modern Plastics, I’m filled with profound gratitude for the opportunity to serve alongside our remarkable team, cater to our loyal customers, and witness the transformative power of plastics in shaping our world.

Modern Plastics traces its roots back to 1945 when my grandfather, Joseph C. Carbone, founded Modern Glass in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Little did he know that his vision would evolve into a legacy of innovation and excellence in the realm of plastics. With the foresight that plastics would revolutionize industries, we transitioned our focus, becoming pioneers in high-performance engineering-grade and medical-grade plastics.

In 2006, we made the strategic decision to join North American Plastics, our parent company. This partnership has been a beacon of stability and growth, allowing us to retain our autonomy while benefiting from collective resources and expertise. Unlike the all-too-common narrative of acquisitions leading to upheaval, our decentralized model empowers local leadership—ensuring that decisions are made with intimate knowledge of our operations, employees, and, most importantly, our customers.

Our unwavering commitment to customer-centricity is ingrained in our culture. At Modern Plastics, we operate with a “maniacal focus” on our customers, striving to exceed expectations at every turn. From listening attentively to your needs to ensuring seamless transactions, our goal is simple: your complete satisfaction.

While operational excellence, evidenced by ISO certifications and rigorous audits, underpins our operations, it’s our core values that truly define us. Honesty, integrity, hard work, continuous improvement, and respect are not just words; they are the guiding principles that drive every facet of our organization.

I take immense pride in the exceptional team we’ve cultivated at Modern Plastics. Their dedication, skill, and unwavering commitment to our mission are the bedrock of our success. Together, we’ve fostered a culture of collaboration and excellence—one that propels us forward, even in the face of challenges.

Beyond our commitment to customers, we are equally devoted to our planet. Our “green” initiatives, including tree-lined warehouses (as “symbol” discussions points on warehouse tours) and extensive recycling efforts, underscore our dedication to environmental stewardship. Through initiatives like North American Plastics’ recycling division, we are proud to contribute to a more sustainable future—keeping millions of pounds of plastics out of landfills annually.

In closing, I extend my heartfelt gratitude for your continued support and partnership. Whether you’re a longstanding customer or a prospective collaborator, know that we are here to support your growth and success. Should you ever need assistance or wish to connect directly, my door is always open.

Thank you for entrusting Modern Plastics with your business. Together, let’s continue to innovate, thrive, and make a meaningful impact in the world.
