Company History

Boedeker Plastics was established in 1984 by Marvin Boedeker and his wife, Cathy Sofka Boedeker. Both were born and raised in Shiner. In the early 1980s, Marvin was branch manager of A-1 Plastics in Houston, Texas. When the Houston branch was sold, Marvin moved back to Shiner and started his own company. Throughout the '80's, the company was relatively small, with fewer than 10 employees.

In 1994, Boedeker Plastics started their own machine shop to produce plastic parts from the molded sheet, rod and tube sold by the distribution company. The machine shop has expanded and, in January 2007, employed more than 40 people.
