UBLY, MICH. (Aug. 15, 11:45 a.m. ET) — Extrusion blow molder Regency Plastics Inc. will build a 30,000-square-foot addition to its headquarters plant in Ubly, in part to house a new blow molding machine the company plans to buy, according to a published report.

The Huron Daily Tribune reported that a company official, Curt Watchowski spoke at the Huron County Planning Commission meeting on Aug. 1. According to the newspaper, he said the new machine, which could be delivered by the end of December and begin operating in early 2013, will not fit in the current factory building. About 6,000 square feet of space of the expansion will go for manufacturing, with the rest used for storage and shipping parts from the new machine.

The Planning Commission approved the project, which will create about three jobs per shift, the newspaper said.

Contacted by Plastics News, Watchowski said he is an outside contractor handling the facility management work. He referred questions to CEO John Moll, who did not return a telephone call.

Regency Plastics is part of Gemini Group Inc. of Bad Axe, Mich. Regency employs 91 people in Ubly, according to the story in the Daily Tribune.
