OUR TEAM

Specialists in Custom Plastic & Metal Fabrication Since 1946.

Tom Herbert
Tom HerbertPresident
Started at Bo-Mer: 5/21/84

It’s the all-American story. After graduating from Morrisville State College
with a degree in Plastics & Mechanical Technology, Tom joins Bo-Mer in 1984.
He works hard and when he gets the opportunity, he grabs it and purchases
the company in 2001. It’s safe to say he has seen more change in 16 years than all the 55 years prior to him purchasing the business. It’s Tom’s steady hand, both in running his company and our customer projects, that set him apart. If you value hard work, honesty and a commitment to excellence from your vendor partner, you’ve found the right person, and the right company.

Started at Bo-Mer: 6/4/18

TJ began working part-time in the summers and throughout holiday breaks. His vision has always been to follow in his father’s footsteps and make no mistake, he is on the right path. In 2013 until his graduation from SUNY Oswego in the Spring of 2018, TJ was working from the “ground-up” as he worked on the manufacturing floor learning the ins and outs of the company; the products and the customer base. He is now underway, working with sales, estimating and engineering after obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree. TJ majored in Business Administration and minored in Economics while he was fortunate enough to fit a few engineering classes into his schedule.

Dan started following his father and uncles’ footsteps at the young age of 12 years old. He was in the journeyman program for 4 years before becoming NYS certified. Dan is a highly skilled, seasoned apprentice toolmaker who is never finished honing his craft. Education is of utmost importance to him, as he continued to attend SME seminars on various tool designs, as well as CCC for electronics and selected courses to round out education in associated fields.

ABOUT BO-MER PLASTICS

Bo-Mer Plastics was founded in 1946 in Auburn, New York where it still conducts business today.  In 2001, Bo-Mer was purchased by a long-standing employee who recognized the potential of the company and the value it provided to the local community.  Bo-Mer is a custom plastic and metal fabricator serving a variety of customers in both the US and abroad.  Our focus has always been to understand the customer’s vision and work with them hand-in-hand to bring that vision to fruition.

What makes us different?

The truth is, there are many qualified plastics manufacturers out there, all with fine equipment and the ability to produce quality parts. But bringing your project to life is never a straight line. In fact, little goes according to plan.  And, it is in this exact scenario, where Bo-Mer thrives. We have the imagination, passion, and talent to solve the unique challenges of your project, and deliver results when others cannot.

When a customer contacts us regarding a project, we have the ability to manufacture their part completely in house saving them the time and expense of involving multiple vendors. It’s this ability to adapt to changing customer requirements, and our desire to push the envelope, that sets us apart from our competition.
