Plastics Color Continues Growth
PCC (Plastics Color Corporation), a supplier of color concentrates, compounds, custom-functional masterbatches and other polymer technologies, has announced plans to significantly expand production capacity at its Calumet City, Illinois/USA, manufacturing facility.
The expansion will add 40,000 square feet to the building and a minimum of one multi-function production line. The new line will give PCC 40 % more capacity in Illinois and employ seven to ten personnel including an Operations Manager, a senior leadership position which the company plans to hire in the coming weeks. PCC expects to be operational by late 2014. This is the first building expansion of the Calumet City plant since 1981.
The Illinois management is preparing an RFQ for new extrusion equipment and plans to select suppliers in late February. PCC President Doug Borgsdorf said, “We are looking for suppliers that will provide the same level of service and technology we provide to our customer base.”
