Vanguard Plastics was founded in 1972 by Lawrence Budnick Jr. with just a single molding machine and a vision to build a custom molding business focused on precision injection molding. It would be based on integrity, solid engineering and best possible equipment and staff. Since then Vanguard has grown to what it is today; a high tech manufacturing plant out fitted with 22 molding machines, the latest robotics and staffed by 40 knowledgable and dedicated people. Many of the folks who make Vanguard Plastics what is have been with the company for two decades or more.
Del Rey Products
Vanguard Plastics purchased Del Rey Products line from the Mazur family in 2014. Del Rey pioneered building affordable and unique serving ware for the catering and home party market in the 1970s. Many of these designs replicated those created by many famous brands in the glassware and crystal markets. Vanguard Plastics carries on the Del Rey name today. We look forward to introducing new products and styles to keep the Del Rey line fresh, distinctive and affordable. See our Del Rey page for product information and details.
