K'NEX Brands, the only U.S. construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love TM, and its sister company, The Rodon Group, a custom plastic injection molder, recently ramped up their advocacy efforts on behalf of American made products.
Committed to manufacturing in the United States at a time when most toys are made overseas, K’NEX has become America’s Building Toy Company--over 90% of its parts are manufactured by The Rodon Group. In business since 1956, The Rodon Group makes billions of parts each year in its 125,000 square foot eco-friendly facility and is one of the largest family-owned and operated injection molders in the United States. In addition to manufacturing K’NEX parts, The Rodon Group serves a diverse group of industries including consumer products, medical, construction, and pharmaceutical.
“Independence means having the flexibility and ability to control your own destiny. Made in the USA products are a fundamental example of the Independence we celebrate each year. The more we make here at home, the more we shape our own future, and that's what independence is all about", said Michael Araten, President and CEO of K'NEX Brands and The Rodon Group.
Both K’NEX and The Rodon Group; third generation, family-owned businesses located in Hatfield, PA; are active members of American Made Matters, an organization whose mission is to educate consumers about buying US-made products to help strengthen the American Dream.
