MUSKEGON, MICH. - Curtis Chambers is selling Pliant Plastics Corp., the custom molder he founded in 1967, but he will remain in the plastics industry, thanks to his two other businesses. Chambers said Pliant Plastics, with $3.3 million in 1994 injection molding sales, 36 employees and 28 presses, each under 100 tons, will be put on the selling block within the next three to six months.
``We just need some young blood in here. The company's successful,'' said Chambers, 57. ``I need somebody with some new energy and new vision.''
Right now, Chambers is getting more of a charge from his other Muskegon companies, Dynamic Conveyor Corp. (Dyna Con) and Nauticraft Corp. He said Nauticraft is making traditional composites boats now, but could begin production of rotationally molded boats in the future.
Dyna Con makes conveyors for the plastics industry. Chambers founded Dyna Con in 1990 after Pliant Plastics had problems finding the right size conveyor for its small machines.
