Who are The Plano Molding Company?
In 1952, Warren “Pete” Henning returned from a Florida fishing trip with the desire to improve the tackle box. Tired of bulky metal boxes that rusted quickly, Pete set out to create a lighter, rust-proof product that could withstand saltwater fishing trips. His design replaced metal with plastic, which reduced weight while still providing durable, versatile storage. This re-envisioned concept also removed the possibility of rust, since plastic resists water and rust formation

One simple yet revolutionary idea changed the entire fishing industry, and has become the standard in modern tackle boxes everywhere today. But the tackle box was just the beginning for Plano Molding Company. They quickly realized the basic concept of molded plastic storage could benefit more than just fishermen. Their product line now includes storage options for gun owners, archers and hunters. They have soft cases and hard cases; backpacks and duffels; boxes of every shape and size. It all started with one tackle box, but it has grown into much more.
