In 1919 Recto Molded Products was formed in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio to fill a need presented by the first automobile companies – to manufacture and supply molded phenolic rectifiers. Recto filled this requirement, and in doing so became one of the earliest plastic processors in the United States. The name “Recto” was derived from these first products and despite the broad range of industries served throughout our 100+ years in operation, it still remains today as the company title.

In more recent years Recto has continued its focus on plastic molding and finishing, with a strong emphasis on advances in machine and molding technology, process control, automation, tooling design, as well as engineering support at all levels of part development and production.
