|Zorn Molds, Inc
began its operation June 1, 1993 in a 5000 square foot rented
building in an industrial park on the north side of Birmingham with
partners Ray Guess and Regina Coleman. The name "Zorn" came
from Regina's step father who was honored to give them permission to
use his name.
partners were both raised in family owned manufacturing businesses
and had very complementary skills. This lead them to believe
they could be successful in filling an opportunity that existed in
the soft plastic fishing lure manufacturing industry. The
industry required specialization and very detailed 3D cavity and
four axis machining. Zorn focused on this opportunity and
began filling the need in the industry with high quality, CNC
machined injection molds.
The business grew rapidly.
In 1994 Zorn began to manufacture injection machines, heat
exchangers, injection valves and other miscellaneous equipment needed
by fishing lure manufacturers.
After Zorn had specialized in
designing and manufacturing fishing lure molds and equipment for few
years, They discovered they were fully capable of manufacturing many
other types of molds, parts and equipment.
In 1997 the founders of Zorn
began diversification enabling Zorn to grow in industries outside
the fishing lure industry. In 1998 Zorn moved into it's new
facality and began to manufacture many types of molds, parts and
equipment that required state of the art equipment, highly skilled
people, very simple to very complex, 2D, 3D and four axis machining.
Their ability to combine many skills and resources in machining,
polishing, programming, fabricating, welding, electrical /
electronics, hydraulics, pneumatic & assemble enable them to design,
engineer and manufacture a wide variety of molds, parts and
equipment for many different industries.
Zorn learned they excelled in
designing innovative equipment, molds and manufacturing techniques.
They enjoyed solving complex manufacturing problems with a
combination of custom built molds and equipment. They now focus on
designing and manufacturing several types of high quality CNC
machined molds and parts including but not limited to fishing lure
molds, soft plastic molds, thermoform molds, blister pack molds,
investment casting molds, blow molds, urethane molds Styrofoam molds
and general CNC machined parts.
