COLUMBUS, IND. - Metal stamper Sacoma International Inc. is moving into a new plant in Edinburgh, Ind., and is likely to relocate a related plastics operation there within 18 months. Sacoma Plastics Inc., under common ownership with Sacoma International, is growing rapidly and will need more room, said spokesman Stuart Kaplan.
The plastics company specializes in high-tolerance, small part molding and operates 11 presses with clamping forces of 15 tons.
Both Sacoma companies are based in Columbus and produce automotive parts.
Kaplan said Sacoma Plastics, now with eight employees, is likely to add another four injection presses, probably 18-ton Sumitomos, in the months ahead.
The new plant for the metal stamping operation, to be housed in a 45,000-square-foot building on an 11-acre site, is expected to open in the spring of 1996.
