Warll & Kirkpatrick

In the fall of 1969, Warll and Kirkpatrick, motivated by their growing belief that there was a substantial market awaiting improved rotary die cutting covers, formed Dicar Inc. Most people believe the name was forged by combining the “Di” from die cutting with the “Car” from carton. For the record, Dicar is in fact an acronym derived from the initial letters of Ron’s and Bud’s wives’ names (Dianne Warll and Carin Kirkpatrick)

In their workshop in Riverdale, New Jersey, the partners successfully designed and manufactured both a one piece urethane rotary die cutting cover and a printing plate mounting system, which could be retrofitted in the customer’s plant without the need to remove the presses from production. Successfully completing their rotary die cutting blanket test in the summer of 1970, Warll and Kirkpatrick began to aggressively market the product.

In 1972, Dicar would partner with its first OEM customer. In the mid 70’s Dicar began to work on its now highly recognized, easily removable snap lock blanket. Patented in the 70’s, the Snap Lock Blanket became an additional growth catalyst. By 1980, Dicar’s commitment to research and development, quality products and caring service were well advanced. Dicar Inc. looks forward to continued focus by meeting the market demands of being a full die cutting resource for our customers as well as expanding our product range of anvil covers and die cutting systems.
