Established in 1963 by founder Emil Peluso, Pelco first operated out of a basement before moving the company to a small location in Lyons. Nine years later the company moved again to a 6,800 square foot facility in Broadview, which would be the site of Pelco for the next 25 years, producing close tolerance, high quality tools for the Electronics, Automotive, Closure, Cosmetic, and Appliance Industries.
1991 brought the sale of Pelco to Dick Truhlar, Roger Wittersheim, and Rob Suva, three mold makers who have in excess of 100 combined years of mold making experience. Emil Peluso who then was semi-retired, took on the roll as closure prototype designer.
In 1996, Pelco Tool & Mold built a 16,000 square foot building in Glendale Heights, IL. The building was designed specifically to meet current needs as well as future demands. It has the capabilities to produce high quality injection molds, as well as assist in customer production issues from engineering layouts to the final assembly phase. In 2007 an additional 5,000 square feet was added to the Glendale Heights facility to make room for additional machinery and increase the assembly area to support larger molds.
Since the purchase of Pelco, the corporation has grown from 8 employees to 35 employees, with sales expanding from 1 million to 13 million. The company provides a positive work environment for their employees.
With continued purchase of the latest high tech CNC equipment, the future of Pelco includes continued growth and expansion.
At Pelco we believe the relationship we establish today with our customers will determine our future for tomorrow.
