Milacron's Manufacturing Footprint Optimization Plan Shows Results
Milacron Holdings Corp. announces that their newest European manufacturing facility in Polička, Czech Republic, is progressing as planned. The Polička location manufactures the Uniloy brand's complete range of blow molding machine systems. Milacron will also start delivery of its extended injection product portfolio including the Magna Toggle Servo (MTS) and Elektron EVO from Polička, to support growth and customer demand as a result of the successful launch at Fakuma in October 2015.
Milacron’s Polička facility opened April, 2015. The world-class facility is over 11,000 m2 , with a planned addition that will add 4,000 m2 . The Polička facility is operated by over 90 employees. The labor force has more than doubled since opening to meet production demands and the rapid increase in recruitment was aided by a successful local open house that saw 1,000+ visitors tour the facility and apply for employment. To date things have operated well beyond expectations and as a result have seen 100% on-time delivery of all machine orders.
The facility represents an investment of over EUR 15 million to serve the growth of the European market, and allows Milacron to offer high-speed deliveries and support to customers all across Europe. Milacron’s investment in the Polička facility represents a continued commitment and long-term strategy for the valuable European market. “Our investment in Europe is imperative to support our growing global customer base. Our goal here is simple; to be the European leader in blow molding system manufacturing,” said Ron Krisanda, Chief Operating Officer, Advanced Plastic Processing Technologies.
