Rodon Group LLC of Hatfield, Pa., is a finalist for PN's Processor of the Year for 2011. Rodon, a 56-year-old custom injection molder, is widely known for KíNex construction toys. But at its heart, Rodon specializes in small precision parts over long runs on 106 injection presses. Rodon proudly waves the American flag with its motto of "We Beat China Pricing." How does it do that? By taking a disciplined approach of shoot-and-ship molding, eschewing assembly and hiring and retaining a highly skilled workforce. And donít forget its extensive use of robots. The numbers are impressive: 106 molding machines; 88 Rodon employees. One operator runs 15 injection molding machines.
