Milacron to Expand in Czech Republic

Continuing to meet the growth of the European market, Milacron has announced major expansion plans for the Uniloy, DME and Tirad product brands. The company will be investing in multiple, state of the art, highly efficient manufacturing and distribution facilities in Šašovice and Policka, Czech Republic. These facilities will act as the key locations for these product brands offering high speed deliveries and support to customers all across Europe.

The expansions in Šašovice, Czech Republic, all opening in April of this year, include both a 1,000 square meter expansion to the current Tirad facility plus a brand new 3,000 m2 distribution center. The investment totals more than EUR 5 million. The capacity increase provides major fire power to both DME and Tirad, optimizing service levels and furthering the focus on Tirad’s high precision, non-standard mold bases.

In addition to the above, new construction is also taking place in Policka, Czech Republic, creating another home for the Uniloy blow molding machine systems. Ron Krisanda, Chief Operating Officer & President, Advanced Plastic Processing Technologies, describes the new Policka plant as a world class facility in the blow molding industry. The new facility will open this month and will feature over 11,000 m2 allowing for future expansion. The new Lean Manufacturing facility represents an investment of over EUR 11 million.
