About Us

Originally located in central Illinois, the heartland of the Midwest, JEDA may have been built from the ground up a little over 10 years ago but the foundation of years of plastics and extrusion and molding experience had already been established.

Using their collective plastic knowledge and expertise, Jeff and Ronda seek to help the smaller injection molders with their challenges in the expansive world of polymers. Each customer is and will always be valued whether their material needs are great or small.

Partnering closely with customers to innovate, solve molding issues, and develop new products is the root of why JEDA Polymers was not only established but also the reason we continue to grow and thrive.

“If you build it they will come”….a famous movie quote from “The Field of Dreams” seems quite fitting to our growth. With assistance from Dyersville Economic Development Corporation (DEDC), JEDA built a new manufacturing facility and offices located in a newly developed industrial park on the South side of Dyersville, Iowa in 2016. The Dyersville facility is 43,000 square feet and provides us with not only more capacity but greater efficiencies and new capabilities such as an in-house quality lab.

The Jeda Way

We are a highly regarded producer of engineered thermoplastics that is focused on improving the performance of our customers' products through continually developing new and innovative formulations. Our continuing growth comes from a dedicated and engaged team of high performing team members driven to continuously improve customer relationships, product quality, personal performance and profitability.

Because we care for each other, we:

  • Are motivated to look out for each other’s safety
  • Communicate openly and frequently to maintain the rhythm of the team’s performance and challenge each other to be better each day.

We are nimble and flexible in order to support customer needs from small to large orders, same day shipping and special formulations. We engineer unique products for unique applications and do so quickly and efficiently. We are proactive in our approach to safety and productivity. We do not cut corners, we pursue training that enhances our skills and we respect our environment and community by recycling and going paperless whenever possible.

We develop new products that result in exponential company growth. We do this through the relentless pursuit of reduction in changeover times, outstanding effective marketing, inventory control, flawless scheduling and a flexible workforce.

We continuously evaluate our effectiveness and make immediate adjustments. We do this while working hard and having fun with a team we respect and trust.
