TOKYO (Dec. 10, 3 p.m. ET) — Auto supplier Moriroku Group is in the midst of two expansions in North America to make parts for Honda Motor Co. Ltd.'s U.S. operations. The injection molding plants are in Alabama and Ohio.
In the wake of the economic turbulence earlier in this decade, molders today find themselves in much better shape. Molders are gaining a competitive advantage by investing in people, equipment and seeking inroads into new markets on a global scale.
Growth in the injection molding industry is going to be driven by low financing costs and a continued move to reshore some business.
