VOLT Industrial Plastics realizes we live in a different age and time. When 2020 rolled around, none of us knew how the year would unfold. At Volt, one thing we have learned over the years is that no matter what difficulties may come, ingenuity and hard work can sustain you, regardless of external circumstances. We know where we came from, where we are, and where we are going, thanks to the entrepreneurial vision of our founder, Joe Volltrauer!
Although Volt Industrial Plastics began 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 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.
Through the years, Volt Industrial Plastics has become the leading pioneer when it comes to producing plastic fasteners. We provide them in both standard and metric sizes. In addition to the many screws, nuts, clips, spacers and washers we manufacture, you would be surprised to know that many Christmas tree clips, rivets, wire and routing clips are made by Volt!
Along with AGE comes experience and know how! With a tradition of growth and ingenuity, you can rely on us because we come from a solid foundation. For all of your plastic fastener needs - give us a call or drop us an email and our staff will be glad to respond with the information you need.

From Joe’s family and all of VOLT’s crew and staff - we wish you all a Happy New Year!
