GW Plastics announced that it has completed a $10 million expansion of its Royalton, Vt., manufacturing and technology center.
The company said it has added a 30,000 ft2 to the building to accommodate the growth of its thermoplastic injection molding and medical device contract assembly business. The expansion includes a new 13,000 ft2, Class 8 cleanroom capable of housing an additional 30 injection molding machines and an additional 17,000 ft2 of warehouse space.
GW Plastics has added more than 30 new jobs and invested more than $10 million in construction, new technology and equipment. The expanded facilities will accommodate immediate growth for GW Plastics’ thermoplastic molding business and will allow the company to expand affiliate GW Silicones’ cleanroom molding operations.
