Custom injection molder Paydac Plastics Inc. is inaugurating its new location in Fergus Falls, Minn.

The firm relocated from Elizabeth, Minn., and held an open house in April.

“We needed to find a place with larger square footage,” president and co-owner Phil Johnson said in a phone interview. Its new facility, at 11,000 square feet, is more than twice the size of its previous plant about 12 miles away.

Paydac mainly molds industrial parts and found its former manufacturing area too cramped to allow production flexibility. It mainly molds engineering resins such as polycarbonate, polysulfone and nylon into parts such as valve communication devices and housings for electrical and agricultural products.

Paydac moved into its new facility in January after several months of renovations that included upgrading the electrical system.

Phil Johnson and wife Teresa Johnson founded Paydac in 2001, deriving the firm’s moniker from a contraction of the names of their two children. The 12-person business runs six injection presses with clamps ranging from 35 to 250 tons. Its secondary services include pad printing and labeling, sonic welding and insert placement.
