Hiram, Ohio – Mantaline Corp., a US supplier to the automotive industry and commercial vehicle market, has expanded its manufacturing footprint by adding a thermoplastic extrusion and injection moulding innovation centre.
"This facility permits us to blend a whole new set of materials with state-of-the-art processing," said Tom Mlinar, vice president of business development for Mantaline.
The centre will be producing thermoplastic materials including TPEs, TPVs, and TPOs to help customers, such as auto-makers, reach their long term goals.
"This facility allows us to work around the clock with new capacities and capabilities and add new products to our portfolio."
The company expects to run two shifts immediately at the 30,000 sq. ft. facility. In addition, the site is expected to provide room for longer-term expansion; the building sits on an eight acre site.
The Hiram plant is about 15 minutes from the company headquarters in Mantua, Ohio.
