BOWLING GREEN, KY. -- Alpla Inc. will spend more than $20 million to open a blow molding plant in Bowling Green by July. The plant's primary output will be bottles for Sun Products Corp., a maker of laundry detergent and fabric softener.
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.
