This past week, Ferriot enjoyed a visit from students at Akron’s NIHF STEM High School where students had the opportunity to learn how things are made and to see what a potential career in manufacturing looks like. Guided by Ferriot employees, students toured the facility and received a hands-on experience while learning about technologies used in manufacturing.
Our 90th anniversary celebrations continue as Ferriot is the featured story on the front page of this week's Plastics News magazine!

Craig Ferriot’s Speech at 90th Anniversary Event for Employees on 6/11/19
Celebrating 90 Years of Excellence in Building Ferriot’s Future
This is our 90th year celebration. I can't believe it. I've been here a third of it. 33 years! And over the last couple of weeks, I've taken the opportunity to go back and look at some old literature, and I was able to get a lot of information from my dad, my grandfather and some others. I was reminded of all the things that took place at Ferriot that made it successful.
Structural foam molding offers an alternative to traditional injection molding.
Here at Ferriot, we’ve been proud to be a leader in thermoplastic injection molding since the 1940s. Our clients turn to us for professional assistance with contract manufacturing, custom injection molding, painting and assembly. Structural foam molding is another capability we offer when traditional injection molding may not meet part design requirements. The structural foam process creates parts with a high strength-to-weight ratio and is often used for large parts and in metal to plastic replacement.
Company History Highlights by Gene Ferriot (1916-1970's) from steel engraving to injection molded plastics, from Disney characters to Polaroid aviator glasses – a nostalgic look back
In 1916, I started working at the Die Sinking and Machine Company, a machine shop started by my father, grandfather and uncle. I was joined a year later by my brother Glenn. I learned the steel engraving trade and Glenn learned the machinist trade.

pays tribute to its long history, with an eye on a bright future
On June 11th, Ferriot began a year-long celebration of its rich 90-year history with a special event for employees at its Akron, Ohio facilities.
Privately held since its founding in 1929, the company spans over five generations of the Ferriot family. In 1999, Ferriot Inc. expanded to its current 200,000-square-foot office and manufacturing facility at 1000 Arlington Circle in Akron, Ohio.
At Ferriot, we realize that many (if not most) savvy medical industry OEMs want to focus on their core competencies and let another company perform the details of the actual product build. Contract Manufacturing provides numerous opportunities to greatly reduce capital expenditures and operating costs while ensuring the highest quality for the final product.
What we’ve learned over our years of experience is that there’s a clear process to follow to guarantee success when using a contract manufacturer. When done correctly, applying the right process results in both great customer satisfaction and great performing products.
We're pleased to announce that Craig Ferriot, President, Ferriot, Inc. will be speaking at the MFG DAY event on October 5th at the Hilton Garden Inn, Akron, OH. Craig's presentation will highlight some of the technological innovations being utilized in the injection molding industry.
It’s not every day that your company gets featured in a trade publication! It’s even more unique to be worthy of the cover story! The Ferriot team is proud to share with you our BIG IDEAS as they come to fruition.
