Industrial Nameplate, Inc. was founded in 1968 by David Stitzer. Starting out in a basement with family support, David initially focused on printing anodized aluminum foil and plates. The business achieved success right from the beginning and was able to quickly expand by offering pressure-sensitive Mylar, stainless steel and brass.

In 1970, Industrial Nameplate incorporated and rented a simple 1,500-square-foot facility. In 1972, David purchased property in Ivyland, PA and built a 4,500-square-foot space specially designed for our printing and finishing purposes at the time. Each year brought new opportunities allowing for growth within the industry.

During the 1980s, Industrial Nameplate became more recognized, producing work for many industries and government organizations. Due to our industry relationships built on trust and respect, we became one of the go-to resources to help draft drawing specifications for many of the identification products for industrial and military grade parts. As new materials and technology became available, we expanded our services and our facility to 8,000 square feet.

We now operate with almost 20,000 square feet of fully climate-controlled indoor space and maintain pace with changing technologies. Industrial Nameplate has continually adopted cutting-edge innovations as they develop over time.

John Stitzer, son of our company’s founder, started learning the trade by engraving parts in 1988 and spent his early years in the production department. John earned his engineering degree, achieved success as a licensed Professional Engineer designing and managing real estate development, and has since returned to Industrial Nameplate. Upon purchasing the company in 2014, John immediately worked to improve the overall manufacturing and production efficiency, utilizing the latest technologies to reduce the time to completion, while maintaining the best quality possible. These improvements have been achieved while retaining each employee, many of whom have been with Industrial Nameplate for 20 to 40 years. With John leading our team at Industrial Nameplate, we continue to reinforce the attention to quality that had become his father’s legacy.

Under our second generation of ownership, we are carefully reducing our carbon footprint in many ways. Through education and capital expenses, we have reduced waste, increased recycling, reduced demand on consumables such as electricity and water, and adopted paperless technologies. We have also transitioned to adjustable sized boxes to be as efficient as possible with packaging materials and transport costs, helping our customers save money.
