The privately held processor, headquartered in Leominster, MA, reports it has bought injection molds for rigid plastic pails and lids for these. Merritt said the investment is for new 5-gallon pail and cover molds that will add significant new capacity at multiple Plastican facilities. The new molds are expected to be in service in the second half of the year, she added. Plastican runs four facilities, with one each in Dallas, TX; Macon, GA and Phoenix, AZ, in addition to its Leominster facility.

Plastican's containers are sold for a wide variety of products, including paints, foods, construction supplies, janitorial supplies, lubricants, specialty chemicals, swimming-pool chemicals, and pet-care products.
