AGT history at a glance



AGT was founded in 1986 by Mr. Nick Kalouris under the name Richcor Gaskets. Starting out in a small 1,800 square foot facility in the Northwest side of Chicago. Richcor quickly developed a strong reputation as one of Chicago’s Premiere Die Cutters.


After years of steady growth, In 1990 Richcor purchased a 36,000 square foot facility in Melrose  Park, IL. and quickly began expanding on it’s capabilities.  With the additional space, and a new name (American Gasket Technologies), AGT really came to the forefront as a leading Die Cutting Manufacturer.


At this time, American Gasket Technologies (AGT) also started expanding into the POP marketplace by manufacturing display strips and hang tabs. We continued to develop state of the art equipment and quickly became one of the largest manufacturers of these items in the World. With increased demand for our products and commitment to customer service, we quickly outgrew this facility. In 2000, AGT purchased our current headquarters 110,000 square foot facility in Addison IL.


Continuing to diversify our company, we added Extruding and Thermoforming to our already impressive list of manufacturing capabilities. With our added production capabilities, we began manufacturing the thousands of POP components that you see in AGT's catalog.


Continuing our expansion in 2008, we acquired CD Concepts, an Injection Molding facility in Elk Grove Village, IL. We now operate this facility under the name American Molding Technologies. AGT continues to add more production capabilities including retail products, parts, as well as additional POP and packaging components. We remain committed to Excellence. By offering competitive pricing, quick turnaround, quality products and the best possible service, we enable our customers to be competitive in their marketplace.
