Two plastics molders in Shelbyville, Ind., are expanding, with additional business coming in for a medical molder and an auto supplier.

PMC LLC will invest about $500,000 in a 200-ton press and assembly equipment for clean room operations said Dan Theobald, executive director of the Shelby County Development Corp. The Cincinnati-based molder will also add six jobs in Shelbyville.

The investment marks the third expansion for the company in the past two years, he said.

Blow molder KN Platech America Corp. will add 50,000 square feet to its facility, doubling its production space. The company opened in Shelbyville in 2010 as a joint venture of Kyoraku Co. Ltd. and Nagase & Co. Ltd., both headquartered in Osaka, Japan.

Final details on the equipment and new employment at KN Platech has not been determined, Theobald said. The company makes a variety of functional auto parts.
