What started as a single 1200-sq-foot building in DeForest has grown into a string of nine facilities in the United States, Mexico, and China. With expertise that spans large parts to custom medical molds, Evco Plastics continues to evolve in lock step with the plastics manufacturing industry.
"The past 50 years has brought about incredible changes and exciting opportunities within the plastics moldmaking industry," says company president Dale Evans. "With a well-seasoned staff and a commitment to continuing education, we bring something new to the table every time we meet with customers. Innovation has been the lifeblood of our growth over the last half-century."
With every new piece of equipment—from the company's CMM laser scanning arm and soon-to-be-announced 3D printing technology to a 3500-ton press and ever-expanding Technology Center—Evco Plastics reconfirms its commitment to its customers, notes a press release distributed by the company.
"We're excited to see what the next 50 years hold," says Evans. "We're ready for the challenges and are looking forward to the next evolution."
