in Richmond, Indiana, in 1972 by Mr. Bruce Elder, Vandor Corporation
specialized in custom die cutting of chipboard and corrugated fiberboard
components. Initially, our
focus was on proprietary products that simplified and revolutionized the
process of trimming casket interiors.
Manufacturers using these were able to streamline their
operations by eliminating labor-intensive handwork.
After several years of developing these unique products, it was a
natural course of events to turn attention to other disciplines that
could benefit from creative use of lightweight and strong converted
paper products. We devoted
our attention to the packaging needs of the electrical connector
industry and developed several corrugated fiberboard reels that used
paper wrapped cores. Enjoying
success with these led us to explore further the needs of similar
industries including wire and cable, cordage and hose.
Vandor has a proven track record of successful product
development with over 20 years experience assembling millions of reels
1995, we began extensive experimentation with the use of other post
consumer materials. Developing
so many new reel products, we established a separate Marketing
Department called “Reel Options”.
Vandor Corporation’s primary goal in offering Reel Options™
is to provide engineered product protection with the least amount of
material usage, design reels that are easily assembled and make them
available assembled or KD directly from Richmond, Indiana, through your
local reel supplier or from any of our North American distribution
Our Customers appreciate the broad flexibility of the Reel Options™ product line while paying only for the level of protection and strength they really need. Our product line is made possible by the combination of various manufacturing methods which includes injection molding machines up to 1000 ton capacity, custom die-cutting using clamshell, flatbed or roller type presses and complete testing capabilities.
