Conover Plastics - Injection Molding Specialists

Conover Plastics is a privately held plastic injection molding company located in a modern facility in Conover, North Carolina. We were founded in 1974 to serve the hosiery industry with injection molded hangers. Today we are the largest sock hanger manufacturer in the U.S. In addition to being the premier injection molding specialists
for the hosiery industry, we provide custom products for the Furniture, Textile, Packaging, and Toy industries. We are seen as one of the best plastic injection molding companies in the industry.

We are innovators and solution providers and take a great deal of pride in that fact. Our most recent patented products include the Water Fall Hangers Series and the Toe Catcher Series. These patented products provided a superior product presentation and display. Our injection molding machines are made by Cincinnati Milacron’, Van Dorn’, and HPM’ and are between 75 and 500 tons with shot weights between 5 to 35 ounces. Most other plastic injection molding companies don’t have this capacity. Their facilities usually can’t handle these requirements.

You may be wondering…why work with a North Carolina based manufacturer? Our low cost of living, which includes our employee wages, energy and workers compensation cost means you save too. We pass these reduced costs right on to our customers. Plus, the state and local government make it very easy for manufacturers like us to do business. As injection molding specialists, it’s nice to operate in this environment. In addition, our plastic injection molding facilities are state of the art.
