Elkhart Plastics Inc. has added two Ferry rotational molding machines and is hiring 10 new production employees at its plant in Ridgefield, Wash., which is known as Portland Plastics.

Portland Plastics serves the northwest United States, rotomolding fuel tanks, and diesel emission tanks (DEF). The new Ferry RS$-280 and RS$-220, independent arm rotomolding machines will require about 10 new people to run the machines and finish the molded parts.

“Our business is booming,” said Jack Welter, CEO of South Bend, Ind.-based Elkhart Plastics.

After adding the two new Ferry machines, Elkhart Plastics now runs 11 rotomolders at the Washington plant. Welter expects the new machines to become operational in early October.
