ORLANDO, FLA. (April 5, 5:25 p.m. ET) — Targeting more medical work, Genesis Plastics Welding (Booth 30039) is completing construction and facility improvements valued at about $2,075,000, said Tom Ryder, president and CEO.

The work includes an additional 27,000 square feet in space, warehouse racking and electrical panels for about $1.75 million, componentry for $250,000 and doubling of a clean room for $75,000.

Liberty Industries Inc. of East Berlin, Conn., installed an initial 1,000-square-foot Class 7 Standard 14644 medical clean room years ago and returned during 2011 to build an additional 1,000-square-foot clean room, also a Class 7.

Looking ahead, Ryder foresees adding more clean room space—perhaps 2,600 square feet—at a future time to be determined by market growth.

Family-owned Genesis opened in 1996 in a 15,000-square-foot facility on 1.75 acres in Fortville, Ind., near Indianapolis. Recently, Genesis had rented another 13,000 square feet but will no longer need the space.

The idea of an expansion emerged in 2008 and led to the start of construction in September 2011.

Progress on the new building allowed all Genesis operations to occupy the new space in January. The original offices and plant are undergoing extensive refurbishing for completing during May or June.

Genesis employs 72 now and, over four to five years, projects adding 50 new positions, Ryder said. Genesis withholds sales details.
