Rick Finnie is the owner of M. R. Mold & Engineering, located in Brea, Calif., which celebrated 30 years in business in 2015. In 1985, Rick Finnie opened M.R. Mold & Engineering with one employee and has steadily grown the business since. Finnie’s journey began within his father’s line of work, which was in tool and cutter grinding. After his dad closed his business in 1977, Rick worked for eight years for a leading west coast mold maker and his knowledge of liquid silicone began.
Within the last 30 years, having gained intricate knowledge of the liquid silicone rubber (LSR) industry, M.R. Mold has developed its own cold runner system, universal base and automation which enables the company to provide every option for the project’s needs. Rick possesses a unique sense of problem solving, which is extremely important in dealing with LSR tools.
Today, M.R. Mold & Engineering is known globally for its expertise and experience in high quality LSR, gum stock silicone and plastic injection molds. Today the company is home to 30 employees in a 15,000 sq. ft facility with state-of-the-art machining equipment, including a five-axis Yasda mill and five molding machines. We believe in ‘American made.’
