LONG BRANCH, NJ Monmouth Rubber and Plastics is pleased to announce that John Bonforte Jr. is taking over the company's day-to-day operations as Monmouth's new COO.

"I have been involved in the business since I was a teenager working in the plant second shift after school and summers," said Bonforte, who has served as the company's sales manager since 2004. "I'm proud to expand my duties to manage all aspects of our business."

As sales manager, Bonforte was responsible for sales, quality and customer service. His role will now include day-to-day decision making, strategic planning and overseeing the manufacturing operation.

Bonforte's father, John Sr., will remain active full-time with the company as technical and market development director and retains his title as general manager.

"The timing for the transition is right, because markets are changing, and MRPC needs to position itself with 21st century management and planning," the elder Bonforte said.

John Jr. graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 1994 with a bachelor of science in marketing. Aside from his experience with Monmouth, John Jr. also was an outside sales representative for GE Plastics from 1998 to 2003, selling engineered thermoplastic resins.
