ARLINGTON, TEXAS (Dec. 14, 2:20 p.m. ET) — D.R. Joseph Inc., which makes internal bubble cooling control systems for blown film, has nearly tripled its space by moving to a 15,000-square-foot building in Arlington — an investment of about $1 million.

The new operation is located in a former blown film plant with a high-bay area, so it has room for up to three blown film lines. That will help D.R. Joseph and its customers conduct advanced research and development.

The company has build a modular production area inside the larger building, said Michael Pilolli, sales and service associate.

Production began in mid-November.

D.R. Joseph moves from its 5,700-square-foot building in nearby Grand Prairie, Texas, its home for the past 18 years. Both cities are near the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The company, which employs 10 people, makes IBC control systems, width control systems and machine-direction sealing technology that can make two smaller rolls from one large blown film bubble. In December, the firm sold its one thousandth IBC system.

D.R. Joseph’s earlier building was not large enough to accommodate blown film equipment. Pilolli the company will start with a single line and can add two more to meet increased business levels.

Having blown film equipment allows customers to work out pre-production bugs, conduct training and develop standard operating procedures, the company said.
