Milacron increases capacity, service levels in Europe
The expansions in Šašovice, Czech Republic, all opening in April of this year, include both a 1,000 m² expansion to the current Tirad facility plus a brand new 3,000 m² distribution centre. The investment totals more than €5m, Milacron said.
According to the company, the capacity increase will optimise service levels and furthering the focus on Tirad’s high precision, non-standard mould bases. In addition, new construction is also taking place in Policka, creating another home for the Uniloy blow moulding machine systems.
The focus on coordinating European expansions and manufacturing changes supports the overall Milacron growth strategy in Europe, solidifying and ensuring service levels across the region, Milacron President & CEO Tom Goeke added.
Customers can see all of Milacron’s product brands united under one roof at the upcoming NPE show in Orlando, FL, US, from 23 - 27 March 2015.
