Established in 1945

Carson Tool & Mold has been producing injection and compression molds of the highest quality since 1945. We have earned our reputation for excellence by designing and building over 5,000 quality molds since our inception, many of which have been in operation for over 40 years.  

Carson Tool and Mold was founded in 1945 by George Carson, who owned and operated the company until his retirement in 1989, at which time he sold the company to Bob Bishop and Steve Bright. The new owners were assisted in their daily operations by George Myers who had been the plant manager for 35 years. In 1994, when George Myers retired, his son David became the company’s General Manager.

 

In April of 2000, David Myers, who had joined Carson in 1973 and had served in numerous positions from Mold Making Apprentice to Mold Designer to General Manager, attained ownership of the company.

In 1997, David’s son Chris also joined the company to learn the trade and in April 2015 became owner of Carson Tool & Mold.  His 20+ years of design and mold making experience continue the company’s tradition of unsurpassed quality and accuracy.
