Burbak was founded by experienced mold makers Bob Burden and Warner Baker in 1969. They were soon joined by fellow mold maker Jerry Greene, who became President in 1973.
The company moved to its present location in Wilton, New Hampshire in November 1970, where it has grown from five employees in a 2000 square feet building, to 100 full and part-time employees in an expanded 35,000 square feet facility today.
The principal products in the company’s early years were wax and plastic injection molds for the investment casting industry. Starting in 1974, Burbak began producing injection-molded parts and later began developing custom injection molding for the casting industry. By 1985, sales of custom injection molded parts exceeded the sales of tooling operations. Today, Burbak’s primary focus is on custom molded parts, complemented by expertise in mold design and repair.
In 1986, Burbak Machine Corporation was split into two divisions: Burbak Plastics and Burbak Machine. In June 1999 Burbak Plastics became ISO 9002 certified, and is currently certified to ISO 9001: 2008.
