All States Plastic Manufacturing Co. was incorporated in 1963, the outgrowth of a company that previously produced molds, tools, and dies. Our product line was injection molded nylon cable clamps.
In 1968, All-States completes the design, patented it, and began manufacturing the first one-piece all nylon cable tie in the United States. Prior to this, industry cable ties had been "two piece" with either a separate, inserted metal pawl or a two piece all nylon design. The new one-piece ties offered a significant improvement over two piece ties, because they are easier to install, stronger, more durable, and cost less to manufacture . Other manufacturers quickly followed All-States' lead, and today the one-piece cable tie is the industry standard.
For the first 19 years, All-States name was not very visible because at that time our products were marketed primarily through private label accounts. During this time the All-States product line expanded to include beaded ties, wire clips and saddles, printed circuit board supports/spacers, and accessory items, as well as a broad line of cable ties and clamps.
In 1982, All States Plastic Manufacturing Co. changed ownership, management, and marketing direction. One of the major new aims was to sell All-States brand name products to the end-user through stocking distributors. We have since since built up a quality network of Value-Plus distributors to effectively serve our customers. The company name was changed, in 1984, to All-States Inc. to reflect our commitment to growth in existing and future markets, including non-plastic products. The new management team, marketing our own brand name, has established All-States as a vigorous, effective contributor to the industry.
