Founded in February 1987, Vidon Plastics began its life in a small garage with scant utilities. With limited used and refurbished extruding equipment but unlimited focus and determination, Vidon Plastics began manufacturing trim for hospital beds. Excellence in quality, delivery, and support led to great customer satisfaction, the acquisition of further extrusion jobs, and a strong customer base. In the fall of 1987, Vidon Plastics became an automotive supplier. With only two employees Vidon Plastics had sales of $300,000 before the end of its first year.
Growth came rapidly. In 1988 Vidon Plastics moved into a local industrial incubator, the Enterprise Center of Lapeer. A year later, Vidon Plastics had $3,000,000 in sales and 35 employees. The small Enterprise Center of Lapeer could no longer contain the burgeoning company, and Vidon Plastics moved into a larger facility. The company’s success earned itself the 1990 Michigan Business Incubator Association’s “Annual Incubator Graduate Award.” Still growing in 1994, the new facility rapidly became inadequate. Vidon Plastics purchased a lot in the Lapeer Research and Industrial Park and constructed a 40,000 square foot building, with a 10,000 square foot addition in 1999.
In March 2003 Vidon invested in a Wire EDM machine to bring all aspects of Vidon’s custom tool fabrication in house.

With these increased capabilities, Vidon has been able to deliver lower lead times and reduced tooling costs to their customers, allowing the company to exceed $10,000,000 in sales for the first time ever.
