Hi, I’m Andy Hauptner, the COO of Step2 Discovery. I’ve seen much evolution and growth over my 28 years with the company.

From start-up to a professionally managed company with sophisticated systems, Step2 has become the second largest roto-molder in the United States; producing over 3 million products per year. Additionally, we utilize a number of contract manufacturers in Georgia, Pennsylvania, China and Vietnam.

75% of our sales happen through e-commerce channels. And 90% of those sales ship directly from one of our facilities directly to a consumer’s home. We have over 800 operations employees in three different plants and four distribution centers in the United States.

Our engineering department takes CAD drawings from the innovation team to create 3D engineering computer models that are used to then create aluminum molds. The molds are grouped together and fastened to a steel framework we call a spider. These spiders are attached to large arms that move the molds through a heating and cooling process.

The manufacturing process begins with pigmented dry powder plastic resin filling the molds. Then, the molds are closed and sequenced on the arm into an oven, where they are turned on a two-axis rotation, distributing the melted resin on the interior mold surface, creating a hollow part. The molded parts are cooled and extracted from the mold. Excess plastic is trimmed off and the pieces are packaged with other components to create the finished product. Products are boxed and stored, ready for shipping.

Safety is a very important part of our process, for manufacturing and our consumers. All of our products are engineered with safety in mind, subjected to rigorous inspection and third-party testing.

Step2 products are known for their high quality and durability. We have a quality management system to ensure that all products are built to our high-quality standards.

We create some of the best roto-molded products in the world, and our employees take great pride in knowing they are producing products that delight our consumers, particularly children. It’s fun to work for a company that brings families together!
