An Italian tooling component supplier is set to open a new production plant in Grand Rapids, Mich. The HRS Flow Division of San Polo di Piace-headquartered Inglass Group SpA will open a new production plant in Grand Rapids, Mich., the company has announced. The plant, which will manufacture hot runner systems for the American market, is slated to open in the first half of 2015.
