The company also hired Steve Corcoran on Dec. 10 as its new national sales manager. Corcoran has worked in plastics auxiliaries since 1979, including stops at Novatec and Universal Dynamics. Bullivant said going forward, he and Corcoran will fully focus on sales, with the company having also hired four to five additional full-time employees over the last year, including office and production managers.

The company is coming off its best year ever in 2012, topping the previous high watermark established in 2010, with overall business up 60%. Bullivant said sales are growing in markets including medical, packaging, and automotive.

"People increasingly need microfeeding," Bullivan said. "They require more precision and consistency. The economy of the last few years has helped in some ways; companies were forced to do more with less, and a lot of times, they used equipment to boost productivity opposed to adding people."
