Seven Decades of Technical Solutions

75 anniversary logo

Since our founding in 1941 by Erich Dickten and Al Masch, two immigrant toolmakers with a commitment to service and quality, Dickten Masch Plastics has been advancing technical solutions to a diversified customer base in a variety of industries.

Originally a tooling shop, Dickten Masch Plastics began molding custom thermoset components for the small appliance and electrical industries in the 1950s. We expanded into thermoplastic molding in the following decade.

Today, through full-service facilities in Wisconsin, Iowa and Mexico, we combine our many decades of experience with wide-ranging technical expertise and proven project management skills to help customers make the best, most cost-effective products possible.

Safety and Sustainability Are Central to Our Mission


Dickten Masch Plastics values the resources that give us and our customers a competitive advantage.

No resource is more important in that equation than our human resources. That’s why we’re fiercely committed to the safety of our team throughout our facilities. We follow safety measures and documentation procedures to provide an environment where our talented people can shine.

In addition, we’re also deeply committed to proper stewardship of natural resources. This pursuit of sustainability is important not only because of rising consumer demand for environmental responsibility, but also because it’s vital to business growth. After all, goals such as minimizing scrap and waste are good for our planet—and for our bottom lines.

The Dickten Masch Plastics Vision and Mission: To develop and empower a passionate team to become the first choice in providing technical plastics solutions to the North American Market. Our lean enterprise will support the sustainability of our customers’ success and our planet.
