Centrally located in St. Charles, Illinois, Olcott produces hundreds of various jar, cap and closure combinations. Operating twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, we offer quality products at fair prices in reasonable time frames. Olcott was founded in 1969 as a division of Damen Tool & Engineering Co. of Chicago, Illinois.
Damen Tool & Engineering was originally founded in 1944 by Joseph F. Brodner Sr., Joseph F. Brodner Jr. and Peter Brodner to service the booming Chicago industrial market. Damen Tool serviced many plastic manufacturers with mold building and repair functions and eventually began molding plastic jars and caps to service the growing cosmetic and health and beauty marketplace.
Olcott grew under the direction of Joseph F. Brodner Jr. until the late 1980′s when he was joined by his sons Joseph M. Brodner and John Brodner. Olcott became a separate corporation from Damen Tool in 1991 and currently is managed by Joseph M. Brodner and John Brodner. A staff with hundreds of years of combined packaging and injection molding experience provides our customers with extensive know-how in the plastic jar marketplace.
Currently manufacturing capabilities include the injection molding, mold building, printing and cap lining. We operate out of a modern automated factory producing more than a million plastic jars and closure combinations a day. We have dedicated customers that have been buying their plastic jar and closure requirements for years. Some of our original customers back in 1969 still buy from us today.
