CMi Plastics

Consolidated Models, Inc. (CMI) was founded in 1939 by Arthur Hasselbach, Sr. CMI’s operations were first located in the Bronx, New York, offering customers and distributors prefabricated model airplane kits made entirely of balsa wood.

Arthur’s idea to produce these model airplane kits began during his employment with United Aircraft, working in research and development for the US Military. Hasselbach was a model enthusiast, and wanted to make models based on the work he was doing for United Aircraft. Hasselbach started his hobby shop in the basement of his father-in-law’s print shop in the Bronx

On March 27th, 2007, CMI held the official ground breaking for its new facility. In November of the same year, CMI moved its entire operation into the new 70,000 square foot facility in Ayden, NC.
