Critical tolerance parts manufacturer Aberdeen Technology, Carol Stream, Illinois, is celebrating its 25th anniversary. The company was started in 1994 by John H. Schmitz and his son, John M. Schmitz. John H. was already a successful group vice president of a major medical device manufacturing company. His son, John M., previously had sold turnkey manufacturing systems to device manufacturers.
They began working out of a rented space in a warehouse in Glendale Heights, Illinois. In its first year, Aberdeen focused on supplying plastic molded components to a variety of manufacturers in the automotive, consumer, electronic and medical sectors. By 1996, Aberdeen grew exponentially and decided to relocate to its current location in Carol Stream, where the company has cleanroom molding and moldmaking capabilities.
“Working in an insert molding factory was the first job I held as a teenager,” said Schmitz. “I continued to work at the same company through college and into my early 30s before I left to start my own company. This industry is all I have ever known.”
With their 40+ years of experience each, John Schmitz and engineering manager Bill Walter have cemented Aberdeen’s reputation as experts in medical device molding. Their multifaceted capabilities allow the company to be a one-stop shop for its customers providing solutions for device prototyping, mold designs, production runs and parts for first article approval.
