FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich.—Polyplastics USA, a global supplier of engineering thermoplastics, recently announced a significant expansion of its U.S. headquarters in Farmington Hills, Michigan. The company doubled its technical and office space, adding several new molding and testing machines, which will provide a one-stop shop to serve the technical support needs of the company’s growing customer base, Polyplastics USA reported.
Since opening its U.S. subsidiary in 2012, Polyplastics has experienced strong growth for its engineering materials, according to Lindsey Deal, chief operating officer of Polyplastics USA. “This investment reaffirms our continued commitment to the engineering plastics market in the U.S.,” said Deal in a statement. “The expansion will play a key role in meeting the application development needs of our customers and further unlock new business opportunities.”
In the U.S. market, Polyplastics supplies polyacetal copolymer (POM), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) for automotive, electrical and electronics, and consumer electronics applications. Deal said the company’s products have been well received and business has seen very strong annual growth the last several years.
Polyplastics (www.polyplastics.com/en) increased its overall headquarters space with significant additions to the technical laboratory and office/conference room area. The expansion of the testing laboratory includes installation of a new injection molding machine, a JSW 110AD 180H, so the company can provide testing, troubleshooting, and training for its customers. In addition, the company’s new Digital Imaging Correlation Machine from Correlated Solutions will permit the visualization of stress, strain, and deformation within actual parts from the field. Both new machines will enable Polyplastics to offer accurate testing results and save time in the troubleshooting process, the company said in a press release.
