Aberdeen was started in 1994 by Founders 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. John M. had previously sold turnkey manufacturing systems to device manufacturers.
They began working out of a rented space in a warehouse in Glendale Heights, IL. 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, IL where the company has cleanroom molding and mold making capabilities.
“Working in an insert molding factory was the first job I held as a teenager,” Schmitz says. “I continued to work at the same company through college and into my early 30’s 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 alongside Engineering Manager Bill Walter, have cemented Aberdeen’s reputation as experts in medical device molding. Their multi-faceted 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.
