CARDONE's Formula Combines Family Tradition, Quality and Experience for Over 46 Years of Success
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."
A Growing Company
Since its beginning over 46 years ago, CARDONE has grown from six employees into the largest privately-held automotive parts remanufacturer in the world. Headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, CARDONE now employs over 5,000 employees with additional facilities in California, Texas, Mexico and Canada.
A Family Operated Company
Now in its third generation, CARDONE is positioned to take on the future. Raised in the traditions of their father and grandfather, Christin Cardone McClave serves as Chief People Officer, and Michael Cardone III serves as Executive Vice Chariman. "I have learned the company from the inside out," said Cardone, III. "We've built a wonderful family and a wonderful corporation. I grew up here, and I intend to carry the CARDONE tradition into the ever-evolving future."
