VIENNA, AUSTRIA - The Association of Rotational Molders turns 20 this year. To celebrate, ARM leaders are trying to get all past presidents of the trade association to annual fall meeting Oct. 20-22 at the Vienna Hilton. The Oak Brook, Ill., group said there are 600 North American rotomolders making products valued at $1.2 billion. Rotomolding is growing 15-20 percent a year.
ARM members around the world use about 380 million pounds of materials, most of it polyethylene. A new ARM survey, now being developed, will look at labor issues, including workers' compensation, and tooling.
