Rotational molder Centro charts Wisconsin expansion

Centro, a custom rotational molder headquartered in North Liberty, IA, is expanding its presence in Wisconsin by opening a manufacturing facility in Beaver Dam, WI. Centro currently has seven molding operations, one of which is located in Horicon, WI, about 11 miles from Beaver Dam.  

Matthew McGuire, sales and marketing manager for Centro, told PlasticsToday that the company's current facilities have reached capacity and is unable to expand, but that customers want the company to stay in the area. Centro has manufactured in Wisconsin since 1985 and its customer base in that area continues to grow.

With the new facility, the company will add more than 90,000 sq-ft and up to five rotational molding machines. Centro will add at least 70 jobs, generally manufacturing and support roles, to support the new business. There's room for the facility to expand and add more employees as needed.

Centro designs and manufacturers rotationally molded product for OEM's in industries such as lawn & garden, agriculture and construction. The additional manufacturing space is needed to support new business in these industries and to support business requiring Centro's patented, low emissions molding solution RotoLoPerm, the company said.

"Our growth over the last few years has been incredible - all of our current locations have reached capacity," said Brian Olesen, Centro's president and CEO, in a news release. "2014 will be an even bigger year as we have more announcements to come."
