Sil-Pro buys building in bid to expand moldmaking, injection molding


Injection molder, extruder, and moldmaker Sil-Pro (Delano, MN) has acquired a building across the street from its existing operation that will house its expanding moldmaking business and allow it to expand cleanroom injection molding operations.

Brian Higgins, Sil-Pro's VP sales and marketing, told PlasticsToday that his company has purchased a new 55,000-sq-ft facility adjacent to its existing 35,000-sq-ft plant. Higgins said the company's tooling department had out grown its allotted room in the existing building, with the recent addition of some new equipment requiring new space.Sil-Pro moldmaking operation

The tooling operation, including new equipment, will be moved across the street into an area that roughly doubles the total amount of space it occupies. In the existing plant, the company's cleanroom will be expanded into the space vacated by the tooling operation. That expanded cleanroom will house the three thermoplastic injection molding machines Sil-Pro has on order. Higgins said those presses range in size from 40 to 100 tons, with delivery expected in October.
