Plastic shapes supplier Poly-Tech Industrial has opened a 32,000-square-foot manufacturing plant and distribution center in Huntersville, N.C.

A grand opening was held at the site on Feb. 7. Huntersville-based Poly-Tech offers a wide range of plastic rod, sheet, tube and film products. The 14-year-old firm also can provide a variety of fabrication services, including milling, turning and water-jet cutting.

“Our clients become as loyal to us as we are to them”, founder Dan Cedrone said in a news release. “We are known for the quality of our final product, whether it be engineering advice on material for an application, a CNC machined component or assistance in developing a new product or invention.”

The firm operates a total of 30 CNC machining centers with capabilities of 3-, 4- and 5-axis milling and turning. Its water-jet and EDM cutting capabilities allow Poly-Tech to provide services from prototyping to production, officials said.
