Ron began his apprenticeship in the mold making trade in 1969 and worked for 8 years for Kenton Tool & Die in Kenton, Ohio. There he gained experience and expertise in mold making, but learned the injection molding process as well. Using his skilled craftsmanship and business acumen, Ron started PPI, a family-owned and operated business that has become known for its state-of-the-art precision injection molds and molding. With a staff of talented and creative mold designers, machinists, tool makers and injection molding processing technicians, PPI has gained a reputation for quality, precision, and innovative solutions. Using the latest machine tool, software and molding machinery technology gives PPI the ability to meet customer requirements for reduced costs to manufacture and higher productivity.
Our innovative proprietary patented product, Round Mate® shows how Pleasant Precision’s skilled staff, led by Ron Pleasant’s innovative outside-the-box thinking, has put Pleasant Precision on the leading edge of mold manufacturers in North America.
