Volt Industrial Plastics is the leading pioneer when it comes to producing plastic screws and nuts in both standard and metric sizes, license plate screws and nuts, Christmas tree clips, rivets, wire and cable routing clips, printed circuit board hardware, dowels, washers, spacers, tapped spacers, and many other fasteners. We also have an aggressive tooling program in place that adds new tools and produces new parts every year.
While there are several words that describe who we are and what we do, this month let’s focus on one possible acronym for our company! V.O.L.T. Value, Organize, Lead Times, Tradition.
Volt Industrial Plastics places a high value on all of the products we manufacture. We place high standards on every item we produce and ship to our customers. We value you, the customer. We realize that it takes two to have a successful business relationship.
With Volt Industrial Plastics we can make your organizational dreams come true! As we have grown over the years, one thing we pride ourselves in is being ORGANIZED. With over a million parts in stock and a huge array of equipment, parts and pieces, we have learned that everything has its place, and there’s a place for everything! This passion is what drives us to provide the best and the most variety of organizational plastic fasteners and plastic EVERYTHING to our customers.
When wireless Internet connections became the new standard, we got to wind up those ethernet and phone cables for good. It makes our desks a little less cluttered. And as wireless phone charging bases become more common, some of us are ditching our mobile phone cables, as well. But a fully wireless future is still a long way off, leaving most of us to deal with snarls of cords and cables behind our TVs, under our desks and in our office drawers. Messy tangles of cords don’t do any favors for your home decor, and they collect dust bunnies like nobody’s business. Cords that are left in unsafe locations could create tripping hazards or become damaged, which could lead to an electrical fire. Even though cord organization is the kind of job that’s easy to put off, you have a lot to gain by taking a few minutes along with the right organizational fastener to get things under control.
We pride ourself in keeping up with technology and the speed it affords, without compromising quality. Lead times for standard parts ordered are usually 2 - 3 days for a production run.
Instead of waiting weeks for your order to be processed and shipped, we have taken the old school 6-12 week waiting period and have sped the process into less than a week, with some items shipping the same day! Our new facility was engineered in such a way that allows us to quickly access our inventory. You want it fast?
In response to the increasing demand generated for our competitively priced, quality plastic fasteners over the past twenty-five years, VIP relocated manufacturing operations to a 65,000-square foot facility several months ago. Our new location is over two and one half times larger than the previous facility and includes additional warehouse space for finished goods and raw material inventories—plus, there is additional manufacturing space which houses the latest state-of-the-art tool making and production equipment: EDM machines, top-of-the-line CNC-EDM sinker, a CNC milling center and a CNC lathe. To be specific, the facility holds over one hundred million plastic fasteners, which can be shipped the same day or the next day depending on the time the order is received. We are fast!
Although Joe Volltrauer established Volt Industrial Plastics in 1992, the company's roots actually stem from 1952, when Joe came to the United States from Vienna. Along with his worldly possessions, he brought with him the European work ethic that provided the foundation for the business that he eventually launched. “Work hard and do it in such a way that you can take pride in what you do," Joe says of his values and those of his company.
Initially, Joe landed a job as an apprentice tool and die maker for Acme Tool & Die in Chicago at which he particularly loved the challenge of mold making. “It’s like an artist sculpting,” he explained, and Joe Volltrauer has a lot of the artist in him. In 1973, he started his own company, JV Tool, and a couple of years later moved to Arkansas where he designed his exceptionally functional, high-quality molds for manufacturers of plastic components, including plastic fastener makers in the region.
His willingness to put profits back into the business to buy state-of-the-art computer-aided manufacturing equipment has enabled Volt to achieve an exceptionally efficient and responsive organization. In addition, he has attracted people who share his dedication and his skills. And, as with every truly successful company, it is the people that have made the difference.
With a tradition of growth, ingenuity and hard work, VIP expansion indicates our commitment to our customers and our future.
