In August 2015, Hayco said that it would invest more than $50 million on a new injection molding and assembly plant in the Dominican Republic to expand its global footprint and improve deliveries to the United States and Europe. The need for world-class technology in this new facility and reinvestment in its existing operations in China led Hayco to partner with Wittmann Battenfeld and the integrated injection molding solutions it provides, notes a press release from the company.

The Wittmann Group will supply SmartPower servo-hydraulic injection machines, MacroPower series large injection machines as well as auxiliary equipment and the central feeding system to Hayco for its new plant in the Dominican Republic as well as the expansion of three existing plants in Shenzhen, China.

Hayco's Dominican Republic facility is scheduled to be operational in 2017. The company currently operates three sites in China, where it offers product design and development, moldmaking, extrusion and injection blowmolding, injection molding, in-mold labeling, assembly and quality assurance. Its customer portfolio includes Oxo, Philips, Procter & Gamble, Target, Walmart and 3M. The company produces more than 150 million consumer products a year.
