ISO 9001:2008 Re-Certification
LONG BRANCH, NJ – Recycled rubber provider Monmouth Rubber & Plastics Corp. has been re-certified to ISO 9001:2008 standards.
“This is particularly gratifying because the certification is provided by SGS, one of the premier ISO houses worldwide,” company President and COO John M. Bonforte Jr. said. “There are no shortcuts in ISO. It provides a universal language of quality and dependability. Customers know that a company dedicated to ISO adheres to procedures, processes and attention to detail that are highly repeatable.”
Major expansion at Monmouth
The re- Certification is equally exciting, Bonforte said, because it serves as a prelude to a major expansion at Monmouth, which manufactures and distributes a wide range of closed cell sponge rubber and plastic foam, in addition to its Bondaflex recycled rubber products.
A complete announcement of the expansion is expected this fall, Bonforte said.
Sought a different benefit
Company founder John M. Bonforte Sr. said his original decision to seek ISO certification diverged from the motivation often cited by other manufacturers. While many companies pursue ISO as a path to gain business from auto makers, Monmouth sought a different benefit.
ISO provides an independent opinion
“In a small company, where you feel like one big family, it’s sometimes hard for the owner to instill, inflict, enforce the necessary discipline,” Bonforte Sr. explained. “But ISO provides an independent opinion as to what a company’s internal discipline should be”.
“When you adhere to ISO standards, everybody works from the same sheet of music, supplied by a third party that speaks with authority and without bias,” he said.
ISO certification has changed the whole character of our business
“ISO certification has changed the whole character of our business,” Bonforte Jr. said. In fact, Monmouth has become so committed to the international standards that it invites an independent ISO auditor, Rick Casswell, to visit the company each month and provide feedback on Monmouth’s success at adhering to the standards.

by John Bonforte, Sr. | Apr 15, 2016 | Monmouth Rubber & Plastics, Neoprene |
LONG BRANCH, NJ – Long-time closed cell sponge rubber & plastic foam manufacturer & recycling proponent Monmouth Rubber & Plastics Corp. has taken the next step in its conservation efforts with the completion of a major expansion and upgrade at its Long Branch plant and headquarters.
The maker of Neoprene sponge & foam and other closed cell rubber and plastic materials also expects the efficiency improvements to benefit its customers through increased product quality and lower production costs.
The expansion included a new equipment line, consisting of state-of-the-art mixers and presses, along with data monitoring of all processes.
New electrical lighting throughout the facility will lower the company’s electric bills while improving visibility throughout the plant, which the company expects will increase worker morale and, subsequently, efficiency and quality.
“Monmouth is going state-of-the-art, with efficiency on a global scale,” company founder and General Manager John M. Bonforte Sr. said.
The Long Branch-based company undertook the project with assistance from the New Jersey Clean Energy Program, which offers financial incentives for commercial, industrial, and government customers to integrate energy efficient and renewable technologies into new construction and upgrades.
The upgrade is a continuation of long-standing policies and practices at Monmouth Rubber & Plastics, Bonforte said, noting the company achieves 98% recycling of all waste materials produced at the Long Branch facility.
Emergency Demand Response Program
To further its role as a good steward of natural resources, the neoprene foam manufacturer also enrolled in an emergency demand response program, in which Monmouth Rubber & Plastics agrees to reduce its electric power consumption on demand during critical periods to help avoid local and regional power outages.
“Our participation in this program contributes to the overall protection of the power grid and helps avoid additional utility costs and lost revenues for all consumers & businesses in our community,” Bonforte said.
