All-States traces its roots back to 1963 when the original company that produced molds, tools and dies was incorporated as All-States Plastic Manufacturing Co. Our first product line was injection-molded nylon cable clamps.
In 1968, we created, patented and began manufacturing our country's first one-piece all nylon cable tie. prior to this, industry cable ties had been "two-piece" with either a separate inserted metal pawl or a two-piece all-nylon design. Other manufacturers quickly followed our lead, and today, the one-piece cable tie is the industry standard.
By successfully marketing our products primarily through private label accounts, our business grew. In 1982 All-States Plastic Manufacturing Co. changed ownership, management and marketing direction. One of the new management's major goals was to promote brand name visibility by selling products to the end user through stocking distributors.
In 1984, we changed our company name to All-States Inc. to reflect our commitment to continue growth in existing and future markets, including non-plastic products. Working closely with quality network of distributors, we are able to effectively server our customers and establish All-States as a vigorous, effective contributor to the industry.
