Blue Ridge Molding is a division of von Drehle Corporation, one of the leading manufacturers of paper tissue and towel products in the country. Although Blue Ridge Molding is a relatively new company, its history goes back over 25 years when the first injection molds were built to manufacture von Drehle’s tissue and towel dispensers. Many of the same designers and engineers that worked on the original dispenser designs are still with the company and apply their years of knowledge and expertise to the various custom molded products that comprise the majority of our current business.
Beginning with only four injection machines, Blue Ridge Molding has expanded to include presses that range from 140 ton to 720 ton clamping pressure. Blue Ridge features all electric injection machines that are efficient, clean and repeatable. All our machines are equipped with Toshiba’s Ipaq system that enables us to monitor the operations of each machine literally shot by shot to insure process consistency and product quality. In addition, all machines are equipped with robots that improve efficiencies and reduce labor costs.
Being a relatively new company, Blue Ridge Molding has become a supplier to several major US corporations, many of which are well known household names.
