EVCO Plastics broke ground on an addition to its facility in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. With the inclusion of the 31,025-square-foot expansion, the company is positioned to meet the increasing demand for large part molding across a wide variety of industries and applications.
Part of the addition will house a new 2,500- and 3,500-ton press, with space remaining for two more large-tonnage machines. Dryers, portable chillers and other auxiliary equipment will also be added to support the new presses and increased production capacity. The remaining space will be an increase in warehouse storage for molds and finished parts.
With the new machinery facilitated by the expansion, the company will have a total of 35 large-tonnage molding machines over 1,000 tons worldwide and the capacity to handle large molds up to 100,000 lbs. To meet greater customer needs, employment at EVCO Oshkosh has increased by 20% since the beginning of the year. This trend is expected to continue with the introduction of the expansion.
The addition will be fully operational by January 2020. At that time, the plant will have a total area of 116,436 square feet and 22 injection molding machines.
