Plastics Color Corp. intends to open a fourth plant, this time in California. The new facility, scheduled to open this fall, will handle increased business from the food processing, medical device, medical packaging, and pharmaceutical businesses, according to the company. Sun Valley has an extensive manufacturing base and is home to plastics processors including Valley Manufacturing & Engineering, Exacta Plastics, Circle K Plastics, JB Custom Mold Manufacturing Inc., and more.
Plastics Color Corporation (PCC; Calumet City, IL) already supplies color concentrates and additive masterbatches from its facilities in Asheboro, NC, Calumet City, and Nanjing, China. The new 30,000-ft2 facility, located in Sun Valley, will employ 14 when it opens. It will also warehouse PCC's black and white masterbatches for quick delivery to its customers in the region. PCC's president, Doug Borgsdorf, says the company has bought the building and hired the employees, and has two twin-screw extrusion lines on order plus the necessary auxiliary equipment.
