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.
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.
