Shelby Township, Mich. - Injection molder and toolmaker Summit Plastic Molding Inc. is investing $1.6 million to expand its 100,000-square-foot Horizon City, Texas, facility. The company credits growing demand from medical, defense , and automotive customers. The 25,000-square-foot expansion will add warehouse space to make room for additional molding presses, Sales Manager Nick Gedeon said.
"We are also increasing our capabilities to our tool shop that is located here," Gedeon said. "We are adding CNC machines and EDM machines to support building plastic injection molding tooling in-house"
Shelby Township-based Summit began construction on the expansion in August, and the space is expected to be operation- al by February or March.
"COVID has caused ... delays, but we are progressing nicely," Gedeon said
