Thermoforming company Tek Pak Inc. (Batavia, IL) has announced that it is adding a 35,000-square-foot production facility at its St. Charles, IL, plant. As first reported by Daphne Allen, Editor in Chief of sister brand MD+DI, the expansion will house the company’s thermoforming division serving medical device and food packaging customers and will include a 3,400-square-foot cleanroom.
The company will be addressing the speed at which it accommodates customers, President Tony Beyer told Allen. “We will be adding high-speed thermoformers to complete our products at a speed that is uncommon in the industry,” Beyer said.
The new facility is expected to be up and running by the end of this year.
In addition to supplying thermoformed products using industry-standard materials, Tek Pak employs laser trimming to provide solutions for technically demanding applications. Applications include multi-layer materials with unique barrier properties.
Tek Pak also develops production, tooling and thermoforming molds for the food, medical, electronics and retail markets. Its equipment can make very large to very small molds, while holding tolerances up to ±0.0005 inches, according to the company.
Tek Pak will be exhibiting at the upcoming co-located MD&M Minneapolis and PLASTEC Minneapolis event on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. To learn more about the expansion and the company’s extensive portfolio of products and services, visit Tek Pak at booth 512.
