Preform Technologies LLC is moving to a newly built 40,000 square-foot facility in Swanton, Ohio, to add extrusion blow molding capability and accommodate an increased demand for preforms. Part of Plastic Technologies Inc.’s family of companies, Preform Technologies is known for its ability to produce technically challenging, smaller volume PET preforms for food and personal care applications.
“Adding extrusion blow molding production is a natural evolution of our niche manufacturing expertise. We are going to be focusing on difficult projects that can benefit from our unique capability,” says Jim Sheely, president, Preform Technologies.
Because of its ability to work with challenging colors and shapes, the company views itself as an ideal development partner for innovative PET bottle launches that push the manufacturing envelope.
The new facility is located within seven miles of its previous 7,500 square-foot location. Expanding to more than five times the former size will enable both production and warehousing to now be housed under one roof. The new facility is expected to be fully operational by August 31st.
