History                                                                                             

 

The Dion Manufacturing Company, founded in 1968 by Edward Dion Sr. (Ted and Dennis’ father) was a tiny 300 square foot shop in Attleboro, Massachusetts. The initial product line was Pennsylvania Dutch souvenir jewelry. The first foray into custom designed products was a lapel pin creation for a Pennsylvania distributor, Conestoga. In 1977, we incorporated as E. A. Dion and through a series of facility moves now operate in a 30,000 square foot modern facility.

 

Selective, sustained and steady growth combined with high customer retention and a loyal distributor network characterize Dion. Despite our growth, we remain very much a family business. Edward “Ted” Dion Jr. joined the business in 1980, and in 1983 his brother Dennis entered the business. Ted and Dennis are actively engaged in the day to day operation of the company and are supported by a stable and extremely capable management team.

 

Selling strictly through our distributor partners, E. A. Dion is a fully integrated manufacturer of precious and non-precious rings, pins, tacks, and other jewelry awards, with a complimentary global sourcing capability and a successful presence in three key market segments – Recognition, Promotional Products and The Direct Selling/Multi-Level Marketing Industry.
