 About Us

CRP Industries has been operating for over 50 years. What was once a company offering about 200 sizes of German manufactured tires to North America, is now a NAFTA market industry leader providing thousands of products from leading European and Asian brands to the automotive parts and industrial products industries in North America.

CRP is comprised of two divisions: CRP Automotive and CRP Industrial. While each of these divisions provides their own set of products and service to very different markets, they both carry the CRP name and standard of excellence that comes with it.

Dan Schildge, President of CRP and grandson of founder, Adam Schildge, upholds the same principles and values established by his grandfather several decades ago. CRP is constantly working to build new relationships, seek out industry innovations, and bring the premium products home to our customers.


George and Dan Schildge

And there's more to CRP than superior products and service. We recognize that our employees fill the void between man and machine, and without them we wouldn't be the success we are today. The CRP staff is known industry wide for their superior product knowledge and commitment to customer satisfaction. And as we look to the future, that's something that will never change.

 Our Management Team

Dan Schildge, President
Representing the third generation of Schildge leadership, Dan has held a number of positions at CRP elevating to Chief Operating Officer in 2002. Recently he assumed the title and responsibilities of President and CEO. He has the benefit of years of guidance and support from those who have successfully preceded him, which include both his father and grandfather. Before CRP, Dan served in the U.S. Navy as a submarine officer.
Abe Garweg, VP of Product Development
Abe joined CRP in 2002 with over 25 years of auto parts experience. He was also a longtime CRP customer, which means he offers a unique and highly valuable perspective on the business.
Mike Palm, VP of Marketing and Sales
Mike began his career at CRP in 1986. Eventually he left to hone his skills as Director of Worldwide Marketing at Berlitz, an international leader in language instruction. In 2005, he came back to CRP to share his expertise and help us maintain pole position in the marketplace.
Kevin Stock, VP of Finance
In 2006, Kevin came to CRP with an extensive financial and accounting background from the chemical industry giant, Celanese. Since joining CRP, he's been vital in helping us maintain financial stability while creating a sound plan for the future.
George Schildge, Chairman
In 1964, George joined Conti Rubber Products, Inc., which eventually became CRP Industries. He brings 45 years of industry experience to the company, having overseen all aspects of operations including the development of facilities in California and Mexico. George is the second of three generations to have led CRP to great success, including his son Dan Schildge, the company's current President. Prior to his long-standing leadership role with CRP, George graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from Cornell University and served his country in the U.S. Army. In addition to his responsibilities at CRP Industries, George serves as Board Chairman for Precision Roll Grinders, Inc. in Allentown, PA. George is a board member for various family enterprises, educational, and charitable organizations.
 Our Brand Values

The CRP family of brands is as recognized and respected as the company itself. And that is no coincidence. We pay great attention to the products we carry, the people we work with, and the way in which we conduct business. In fact, the greatest attributes we offer our customers are quality, service, and trust. They don't have a sku and they can't be pulled off some warehouse shelf. From the bottom of the organization to the top, a genuine dedication to our customers and our suppliers is what makes CRP - CRP. We have a 50-year reputation to uphold and protect so you can be rest assured that our commitment is second to none. Now that's something to be proud of.
