Mr. John Stanley, Founder, CEO and Chairman of the Board, grew up in Glen Rock, New Jersey and attended Ridgewood High School, graduated from Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in 1959, with a B.S. from the school of Business and Economics. His major was marketing with a minor in Chemical Engineering and he was a two-way starter on the 1957 Lambert Cup football team.  
From 1960-61 he served as an R.O.T.C. commissioned officer in the US Army at Fort Benning, Georgia and Fort Dix, New Jersey.
In 1962 he went to work for North American Machinery Corporation designing and marketing urethane foam manufacturing equipment. He was responsible for turn-key operations and installations throughout the world.
He left in 1965 as a Vice President and went to work for Modigliani Company of New Jersey. For two years he developed processes for reinforcing cellular plastics, with spun glass fibers. Most of the company's activities were in the United States and Italy.
In 1967 he took over as the Assistant General Manager of Drico Manufacturing, a manufacturer of spun glass air filters, where he was directly responsible for manufacturing and new product development.
In 1968 Mr. Stanley developed a revolutionary new air filter utilizing graduated density synthetic fibers, instead of the traditional spun glass fibers used during that time period. After presenting this new product to Drico, who showed no interest in developing synthetic air filter products, Mr. Stanley then started Tri-Dim Filter Corporation. His new company was based around an advanced tri-dimensional synthetic filter media which he further developed in conjunction with E.I. DuPont.
Mr. Stanley was named the 1983 New Jersey Small Business Person of the Year and serves on Boards and Committees with various Missions agencies. He is an active leader in local church activities and enjoys golf, tennis, skiing and being a grandfather. He currently resides in Wyckoff, New Jersey.

After graduating from Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA., Darren went to work for Armstrong World Industries, in their Commercial Ceilings Division, as a sales representative. He worked in Albuquerque, NM and San Francisco, CA before being hired by Keener Manufacturing, a commercial printing company located in Lancaster, PA, in 1985.
