Bernie and Sue Konrady founded Konrady Plastics in Gary, IN in 1981. The company started as a plastics distributor to the greater Chicago region. Over time the company invested in CNC Lathes and Mills as well as routers to machine plastic sheet, rod and tube. In 1990, the company moved to Portage, IN to a strategic location just off of Highway 20 and I-94.

The company remains a family business. Bernie Konrady is transitioning management to his son, Paul, and daughter, Leah. Paul, President & COO of Konrady Plastics, has been with Konrady Plastics for many years and has experience across the company: from running machines to sales, purchasing, and production. Leah, CEO of Konrady Plastics, previously worked in public policy, received a MBA from the University of Denver, and served as President & CEO of One Region (a regional economic development nonprofit in Northwest Indiana). Paul and Leah are an excellent team and enjoy working together.

Bernie enjoys advising Paul and Leah, while upholding his maintenance duties at Konrady Plastics.

The Konrady family (Bernie, Sue, Paul, Leah and Rachel) is committed to upholding their family values to employees, customers and vendors.
