ChairmanHe founded Uniplast back in 1973 with his bothers Larry and Bert Goldman.
Prior to that, United Wire Hanger/UWH Industries of Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, was founded in 1962 by the same three brothers to manufacture and distribute wire hangers for the dry cleaning, laundry and apparel industries. In 1973, they decided to expand the business to service the uniform rental industry as well. In the same year, Uniplast Industries, an affiliate company, was founded to manufacture and distribute plastic hangers, that is when Uniplast’s story actually begins. Joel Goldman is a CPA and is actively involved in the management of both Uniplast and UWH Industries.
President & Co-OwnerJoel passed the torch to Stuart in 1989 when he knew it was time for a new management approach with focus on sustainability and international reach. Stuart helped develop closed and open-loop reusing/recycling programs with several major US retailers so that garment manufacturers initially only in the North and then Central, South America & Caribbean can enjoy the saving opportunities created by the reused hangers and reduce their carbon foot print by preventing plastic waste ending up in the landfill. Over the years, under Stuart’s leadership, Uniplast managed to establish the Global Network of manufacturing locations and sales offices where our trading partners need our presence. Stuart studied Business Administration at the University of Vermont.
Board Member & Co-OwnerWhile his main focus has always been the wire hanger business of the family, Peter stayed on top of marketing and business development aspects of the business he co-owns. His communication skills and expertise in understanding customers’ needs helped Uniplast partner with major US retailers and international brands. He is a well-travelled adventurer having scuba diving and motorcycling experience all around the world with a major in history at Quinnipiac University.
