History

About - History - Par4PlasticsPar 4 Plastics is a true custom plastic injection molder, founded by Joe McDaniel in 1990. Founder and avid golfer, Joe wanted to encompass the true startup mentality and create a strong tradition of family values that included hardworking and dependable people. Not only did Joe want to create success for his family, he wanted to create success for the community. Par 4 Plastics have been actively involved in the community since its founding back in 1990.

Being located in the heart of the automotive region in Marion, Kentucky has allowed Par 4 Plastics to thrive for the automotive industry, while also serving the industrial, consumer goods, electronic and sporting good industries.

 Par 4 Plastics now has over 200,000 square feet of manufacturing, molding, and assembly at two facilities located on 30 plus acres. We have 50 mold injection presses ranging from 85 ton to 1150 ton. Our facilities and equipment are modern, clean and world class. All of our equipment is automated with various poka yoke technology for quality performance. Our facilities have been retrofitted with state of art LED Lighting and air conditioning.

What does Par 4 mean?

Joe McDaniel our founder and avid golfer, wanted something that was easy to remember but unique. Golf has always been a driving force of his life and so it became a cornerstone in creating the company.

Our new logo matches the ingenuity and dynamic creativity exemplified by the entire team at Par 4. The logo icon is comprised of four individual pieces that come together to form one entity, a nod to the Par 4 name and the teamwork put forth by all employees. The negative space within the icon carves out the number ‘4’ in a customized font that simultaneously resembles a golf flag. The inner portion of the ‘4’ represents a fairway while the three outside portions, naturally in Kentucky Wildcat blue, can be seen as water.
