Monmouth Rubber & Plastics Corp. is moving into its second generation of family operation, with John M. Bonforte Jr. taking over as president and chief operating officer of the plastic foam and sponge rubber manufacturer.
John Bonforte Sr. founded the firm in 1964. He remains with the Long Branch-based firm as general manager and technical director. Under John Bonforte Jr.'s leadership, the firm is significantly increasing its production capacity. The succession plan will ensure the firm's longevity, Monmouth said in a Feb. 8 news release.
The younger Bonforte was named sales manager in 2004.
Monmouth makes Durafoam-, Airaflex-, Duraflex- and Bondaflex-brand foam products.
