CARDINAL PLASTICS - BALTIMORE
Cardinal Plastics, Inc., founded in 1989, is a full service custom injection molder of thermoplastic materials.
Just like in the olden days of melmac factories and 1950's plastic production companies, this factory runs 24 hours to keep up with the demands of the market. They make the same capsules I'm talking about here, to the tune of
TWO MILLION PER WEEK!
Their products website, (Cardinal Distributing) carries vending machines, capsules and the plastic toys that go in them at wholesale prices. So it seems I can launch my own vending machine business for under $300 (that's buying a machine at $130, and filling it with toy capsules) and start making a killing off selling little toys to kids. They are located on Erdman Avenue in Baltimore, and their contact number is 1-800-368-2062 just in case you should be doing this yourself.
I'd love to see those capsules being made!
In the meantime, I'll stick to vintage plastics.
