Plano, IL (July 13, 2017) – Fourteen years after helping to pioneer the injection molding process in America, Plano Molding Company founder Warren “Pete” Henning returned from a Florida fishing trip in 1952 with the desire to improve the tackle box. Tired of bulky metal boxes that rusted quickly, Pete set out to create a lighter, rust-proof product that could withstand saltwater fishing trips. Henning’s molded plastic tackle box would revolutionize – if not create – the tackle storage industry. But the tackle box was just the beginning for Plano Molding Company. The company quickly realized the basic concept of molded plastic storage could benefit more than just fishermen.

Today, Plano manufactures and distributes thousands of innovative hard and soft products to help anglers, gun owners, archers and hunters protect their passion. And most of these products are still proudly made right here in the USA.
