OMICO, which stands for Owensboro Molding Injection Company, was founded in 1963 with a focus on delivering high-quality blow-molded products to serve a wide range of industries. Today, after nearly 60 years of experience in the industry, we’re still specializing in custom blow molding with a deep understanding of industry safety standards and client expectations.
At OMICO, our mission is to improve the quality of life for our employee-owners and clientele. We’ve long been committed to providing high-quality products on time and according to your specifications and expectations. To that end, we invest heavily in new technology and equipment and seek the industry’s top talent to ensure we’re delivering the best possible products. We’re still thriving after all this time because we’ve never lost sight of the importance of ongoing growth, education, and development.
As a 100% employee-owned company, our entire team is invested in our mission. We provide ongoing training and education, as we believe our employees’ success is the company’s success, and vice versa. All of our team members take pride in their work.
We offer custom full-service blow-molding solutions for a range of industries:
Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of serving some of the top companies in the world, including General Electric, Monroe, Honda, and KYB. We look forward to the continued innovations that allow us to keep pace with the needs of these competitive manufacturers.
Half of our 120 employees have been with us for 20 years or more, bringing an unparalleled depth of experience and dedication to our organization. Our engineers work closely with our clients to create custom molds for their products, while our knowledgeable customer service team is equipped with the technical expertise to help us maintain our production schedules while addressing your questions and concerns.
With the GO FAME program, we’re helping shape the future of plastics manufacturing by working with young people via an apprenticeship program. This gives them a strong career start in the industry, complete with the necessary training, education, and on-the-job experience, without the high financial debt that’s often associated with earning a degree.
With 26 blow-molding machines, we can manage shot capacities of 0.66 to 25 lbs. for products ranging in size from 1 in. to 6 ft. We can create multi-component assemblies requiring plastic welding and press fitting as well as foam filling for insulated products. We offer custom mold design, new product development, and existing product redesign. We also provide finishing, inspection, assembly, and packaging, and shipping services to take your project from start to finish.
When you work with OMICO for your custom blow-molding products, you receive more than a high-quality finished product. You get the full weight of our experience, passion for customer service, and commitment to excellence in every project. As a USA manufacturer, we’re based in Owensboro, Kentucky, and we’re proud to be part of the community.
Each new project is approached with the mindset that we’re helping get products into the hands of people who really need or want them. Whether this is a car part, toy, lawn equipment, or something not created yet, we’re the ones who bring to life the designs you’ve envisioned.
OMICO has vast experience with prototyping tools and assisting customers with design specifications. Our team members coordinate not only with the design, but the building of production tooling and any secondary equipment necessary to meet our customers’ needs.
