Apex Expands Capacity

An area business is expanding capacity:

Blow molder Apex Plastics is looking to boost output and productivity by investing in new machinery and equipment. New equipment recently installed in Apex’s Brookfield plant will improve capacity and efficiency, opening up some new opportunities for company. The new machine features higher cavitations – up to eight – and allows the plant to make larger containers. The new downstream equipment will make the company better equipped to mold handleware. Apex specializes in short-to-medium runs of custom or proprietary bottles and containers, including those in specialty shapes and colors. It serves customers in various markets, mainly home and beauty, automotive, agriculture and animal health products. Replacements of the older machines on Apex’s line will help the plant continue to grow capacity.
