STURGIS, MICH. - ACM Plastic Products Inc., a Sturgis-based blow molder with 12 machines, invested $500,000 to raise its ceiling and add equipment. Last month, the firm raised its ceiling in one section of its 70,000-square-foot plant from 16 feet to 25 feet to accommodate a Sterling machine with a 30-pound head that will be installed this month. This machine will be used for plastic pallets made from high density polyethylene, said Jerry Coleman, plant manager.
About six employees will be added to the staff of 47.
ACM serves the food, medical, toy, packaging, automotive and lawn and garden markets. ACM reported sales of $3 million last year.
