2nd Generation Family Owned & Operated
Ethridge Plastics has been family owned since its beginning in 1991. The late J.T. and Erma Jean Ethridge started the business after being invited to manufacture game calls for the former Trigg County enterprise known as Knight and Hale. J.T. worked in an injection molding facility in Hopkinsville, Kentucky at the time when he decided to pull from his retirement fund, venture out on his own, and purchase three used injection molding machines. He first located his business in a vacant auto parts building in Cadiz, but later moved to the current location in Trigg County’s Industrial Park #2 in 1992. Since 1991, the business has grown and diversified. To this day, they continue to make game calls, but have since begun manufacturing parts for automotive, bowling balls, air conditioners, and military weapons usage. Ethridge Plastics recently added hydrographic dipping, a process of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. The process can be used on many materials including metal, plastic, glass, and wood. Since that time, they have “dipped” a wide variety of products from guns to bowling balls to ATVs to various accent parts. Ethridge Plastics is recognized as a “Licensed Decorator” for Mossy Oak products. Following Mr. Ethridge’s retirement in 2019, the business was handed to his sons, Edward and Jerry, who continue to operate it today.
