About Us

Ames Industries Inc. is a family-owned and operated custom injection molding company founded in 1984 and located in Hershey, Pennsylvania. We have 37 injection molding presses and 50 employees, offering services like prototype and production mold builds, high- and low-volume production molding, part inspection, laser engraving, ultrasonic welding, and assembly across our two plants.

A Little History

Ames Industries was founded in 1984 by a former toolmaker for AMP Inc., who started building molds and molding parts in his home’s basement. The company began as an extension of AMP, running prototypes and high-volume production molds for them. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Ames Industries expanded its press base to 34, offering a full-service injection molding facility, complete with an in-house tool shop and quality inspection facility. 

In 2008, Ames became ISO 9001 certified, and we started expanding into the Automotive, Medical, and Industrial markets. In 2017, with the purchase of a second plant, Ames added over 10,000 square feet of manufacturing and assembly space. In 2018, we launched our private label,  THRiL brand, for the firearms market, and ownership was transferred from the founders to their daughters, Shelly and Suzy, who continue the legacy of excellence that Ames was founded on.
