CARDONE Industries was co- founded by Michael Cardone, Sr. and son, Michael Cardone, Jr., in a small row house in North Philadelphia. The year was 1970, and their niche was remanufacturing a single product line; windshield wiper motors. Over the years, the company has grown, now offering over 90 product lines and 46,000 SKUs of automotive hard parts.
"Our aggressive growth plan has taken us a long way from that row house in North Philadelphia," said Michael Cardone, Jr. "But our culture still reflects that small business, familial mentality that was imprinted on the company at its inception. Our people – our “factory family”– are revered as CARDONE's most valuable asset."
