PENSACOLA, Fla.—A prominent U.S.-based manufacturer of acrylic block windows is making its contract injection molding services available to companies worldwide amid heightened demand for injection-molded products during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hy-Lite®, a U.S. Block Windows company, has seven injection molding machines at its Pensacola facility to support manufacturers of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other supplies, the company said in a release.
“We understand manufacturers of personal protection equipment and other supplies are running at maximum capacity and are challenged to keep up with demand,” said Steve Beck, plant and technical manager for Hy-Lite, in the release. “If we can be a small part of the solution in a national emergency, then we want to help.”
Hy-Lite’s injection molding services are available on a contract basis with speedy turnaround. The machines are capable of small, specialty, and slow-run projects.
“We’re offering both the expertise and machinery we have on site to support the injection molding needs of inventors, plastic parts suppliers, and manufacturers,” Beck said. “Whether someone needs high volume parts or a small quantity of intricate pieces, we can handle a wide variety of needs.”
Although Hy-Lite cannot manufacture safety masks or blow-molded items, such as hand sanitizer bottles, Beck said the company has many other options for supporting PPE needs.
“Our team can take on injection molding projects for manufacturers running at capacity, whether it’s supplementing high-demand product production or taking over less-critical secondary lines that have had to be placed on the backburner,” he said. “We have three 300-ton, one 390-ton, and three 500-ton machines available at our place for 24/7 operation. This means we can tackle the small quantity runs and slow running parts because our machinery is always ready for projects.”
Beck has been with Hy-Lite for more than two decades, directing the company’s injection molding and manufacturing operations. He said that Hy-Lite can supply products made with most thermoplastics.
“From downstream assembly to packaging and shipping, we make this process turnkey for our customers. We’re a Made in America company that wants to support the plastics needs of America during this difficult time.”
Hy-Lite is a manufacturer of acrylic block, glass block, and decorative glass windows. The company offers privacy product options that include acrylic block shutters, accent panels, radius walls, partition walls, and door inserts.
