(Long Branch, NJ) On August 23, 2016, Monmouth Rubber & Plastics donated NY Fire Department 911 Commemorative Hats to the Long Branch Fire Department and Police Departments at Long Branch City Hall.

The NY Fire Department 911 Commemorative Hats were purchased from “Wall of Remembrance” by Monmouth Rubber & Plastics in honor of Francis “Tiny” Hayes who had 50 years of service with the Long Branch Fire Department.  The “Wall of Remembrance” Park is located in Brooklyn NY and stands as a graceful and beautiful tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice on September 11th, 2001.

The presentation was made to Ron Guidetti, Long Branch Fire Chief; Kevin Hayes, Director of Building and Development, Fire Marshal; and Jason Roebuck, Director of Public Safety. The hats were presented by John Bonforte Jr., John Bonforte Sr. and Jo Ann Buonomo of Monmouth Rubber & Plastics.

John Bonforte Jr., President and COO said, “Francis “Tiny” Hayes, gave 50 years of his life for us and who along with many others put their lives on the line to serve and protect us; and if need be, the ultimate sacrifice so that we all would have a better opportunity to enjoy and prosper in the many freedoms and liberties that we all have and enjoy today.” “They are not gone they live on and this small token is appreciation for what all those unsung heroes have done” said Jo Ann Buonomo, Office Manager.

Firefighters and police are protecting us 24 hours a day 365 days a year and support all the liberties we sometimes forget about or take for granted until an event takes place in our life that requires the help of

Fire fighters and police department. John Bonforte Sr., Technical Support and GM stated, “We wanted to honor Tiny Hayes and those who served before him and how we currently would like to connect his memory on a local level so young people can relate to his story. The hats are really about people and making connection from the past to present for young people today and future generations“.

Bondaflex Saves Over 27 Million Pounds Of The Earth’s Resources


Bondaflex Saves Over 27 Million Pounds Of The Earth’s Resources.

For each pound of Bondaflex product one pound of carbon dioxide is saved and .1 pounds of oil is saved.

For the past 27 years, the Bondaflex process has eliminated the need for over 27 million pounds of organic industrial production in the form of oil and natural gas, as well as a multitude of chemicals used in the rubber industry. Our landfills have been spared the dumping of 35 million pounds of scrap rubber over the past 27 years.

With its Bondaflex process Monmouth has been doing its part to lower greenhouse gases for over 27 years. Industry has continued to increase its participation as responsible environmental stewards of the earth’s environment. Government regulations and industrial requirements will continue to drive new and improved ways of recycling the waste stream on the planet.

Monmouth’s commitment to continuous improvement of the environmental impact that industry has on the planet is second to none. Monmouth’s Bondaflex process is eco-efficient.


Bondaflex has reduced the need for over one million pounds of new rubber production per year at the Long Branch factory due to the use of Bondaflex for gasketing applications where virgin rubber would have been used.
