This article reports on the plans of John Bonforte Sr., founder and president of Monmouth Rubber & Plastics Corp., to relocate his company from Long Branch, New Jersey. Monmouth's Long Branch operation, which manufactures closed-cell foam, recycled rubber and thermoplastic elastomer products for a variety of markets, has sat in a redevelopment zone in the city since 1996. The process of moving out of his home, and his company's could take the next 1 to 12 years or sooner. In 1995, the company had major expansion plans in the works that would have increased the plant's area by 30,000 to 35,000 square feet.
