Who We Are
A & J Industries, LLC is a privately held corporation with full engineering and manufacturing capabilities. The principals, Al Prindle and John Gaudet, founded A & J Industries in 1993.
Both Al and John formed and ran their company from a Tupperware Building in North Smithfield RI for 7 years before erecting a new 30,000-square foot injection molding facility at their present location in Uxbridge, MA.
In 2000, A & J Industries built a new supplementary 8,000-square foot storage facility to house inventoried product for customers and resins to be used in scheduled production. Management has labored to insure that we provide cost effective injection molding and compression molding services to our customers. We have been successful at competing with services from both China and India.
