Meet The Owner

My company and I specialize in engineered material solutions and custom converted parts.

If you’re going to trust a supplier partner to help your business succeed, you want to make sure you’ve hired the right professional organization with the right values and right leadership team. That’s why I want to take a moment to introduce myself and my company to you.

Originally founded in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1950 by my grandfather, our company is built on the foundation of strong family values, hard-work, faith in God and a determination to succeed. I started working in our original factory in 1986 when I was 15 years old and have performed just about every role in the company, from production worker to line supervisor to cost estimator to sales representative to senior leader. Throughout my life, my mentor and biggest role model has been my father, Bud Zone, who worked in our business for over 45 years and taught me about sacrifice, discipline and prudent financial management.

With this personal, business and industry knowledge gained over the past 30 years, along with a relentless determination not to fail, I’ve seen our business grow from a small mom-and-pop shop into an international organization with manufacturing plants and operations in the United States, Mexico and China serving over 1100 clients around the world.

One common theme has been consistent throughout my career: hire great people, consistently invest in the business, serve customers extremely well, no matter what it takes, so that our mission can be accomplished. And our mission is simple: Build an exceptional business that impacts lives so dreams can come true. That’s right. We’re not just in the gasket and tape business; we’re in the “Dreams Making” business. We want to foster such success for our clients, partners, employees, and stakeholders that we can actually make people’s dreams become reality.

Each day, my team and I focus not only on accomplishing today’s business of solving client problems and delivery high-quality products on-time, but also building tomorrow’s business investing in our company to provide the best client experience possible. We use EOS, the entrepreneurs’ operating system, as our business methodology to set our 1, 3 and 10 year goals and to provide the structure necessary for consistent business execution. Ultimately, we want our customers to “WIN” and work tirelessly on improving the business to accomplish this objective.

Personally, my wife, Heather, and I have been married since 1996 and we have three wonderful adult children and a son-in-law, all of whom are working or have worked in the business. With the fourth generation now active in the company, I truly feel blessed leading our family business having the opportunity to work with them daily and all of our work family with the goal of serving our clients exceedingly well. I couldn’t be prouder of my family and our company.
