ANAHEIM, CALIF. — JSW Plastics Machinery Inc. is nearly doubling its space in a Southern California relocation.
JSW's move — official Nov. 3 — is to a 29,000-square-foot facility in Anaheim from a 15,000-square-foot site in Santa Fe Springs, Calif. JSW is the North American marketing arm for injection molding machines made by Japan Steel Works Ltd.
An enlarged JSW technical center will use three machines with clamping forces of about 500 tons to test molds, demonstrate capabilities and provide customer training, according to William H. Roebuck, vice president of sales and marketing.
The new facility will stock 40-60 machines. Models with clamping forces of 55-720 tons will be on hand routinely, and 940-ton and 1,450-ton models occasionally. The line's largest machine has a clamping force of 6,500 tons.
JSW has operated in North America for about 20 years, occupying its Santa Fe Springs quarters since 1992.
