The story of Helmy begins with its visionary founder, Abe. From a one-machine, two man operation, to the plastic leader it is today, Helmy owes its humble beginning to the man who approached his work everyday with the sole intention of bringing ideas to life. In 1988, Abe, a PhD graduate in Urban Design/Engineering and professor of Architecture at UTSA, developed and patented a plastic landscape system. Being a fierce inventor and entrepreneur, he opted to manufacture the product himself, thus the start of Helmy.
Abe served as CEO until his untimely passing in 2009. Though the company started with heavy gauge forming only, Abe’s vision prompted him to add thin gauge lines. Helmy became one of few thermoforming companies to convert both thin and heavy gauge plastics. Abe dedicated his heart and soul to the company. Today, Helmy operates with many of Abe’s foundational principles and continues his tradition to strive for innovation and excellence.
