The company began 77 years ago as a family owned business. It is still family owned; Vince is a partial owner and has worked there his entire life which is “North of 25 years”. When he started working at Diversified full time in 1993, there were 5 employees. He really wanted to see the business grow. There are now 42 employees.
Vince met Fred at an ARM show just a few years ago, but “we hit it off” and knew that we could help each other out with referrals. Sixty percent of Diversified Mold and Casting business is Rotational Molding.

Why does Diversified sponsor the PDC? According to Vince he is always happy to “further the industry” and to help out. At Diversified, they “think outside the box” and he wants to help promote the students endeavors so that they “think outside the box” as well. Vince understands that a lot of hard work and time goes into the Product Design Competition and he appreciates Winsell’s willingness to organize this annual competition. He said that Diversified will help in any way that they can. He’d be happy to have his sales engineers talk to the students as well.
