Mayon Plastics, inc. is celebrating its 64th year in the flexible vinyl tubing business (1946 to 2010). After World War II when rubber garden hoses were scarce, Mayon Plastics made plastic garden hoses for Montgomery Wards, May Company of Cleveland and Marshall Fields of Chicago. Two shifts a day would run tubing for garden hose. When the winders came to work in the morning the tubing was stacked almost ceiling high. We began making surgical tubing in 1948 when Dr. C. Walton Lillehei asked us to make flexible surgical tubing for lung intestinal tubes. From then on the literature expanded the export market on these surgical tubings. Today we supply open heart surgical tubings, Mayon Plastic beverage tubings approved by Anheuser Busch and Adolph Coors, Eastman Kodak photographic tubings; and tubings for ice cream mixes, water softeners, kites, dental equipment, and battery handles. Now we are looking forward to the potential of further new vinyl tubing usages.
A special thanks to you, a valued customer, who helped us along the way. Without you we could not have attained a successful 60+ years in business.
