Chinese injection molding machine brand Borche continues its North American debut, displaying a machine for the first time at Plastec West (Feb. 12-14; Anaheim Convention Center; Anaheim, CA).
The company's introduction to the North American market began last year with booths at NPE2012 in Orlando and Expoplast 2012 in Montreal. The company is represented in North America by Plastics Plus, a custom injection molder based in Hamilton, ON, which was the first North American company to purchase a Borche machine.
