Crocker Ltd., a custom blow molder in Three Rivers, Mich., recently invested $2 million to expand its Coldwater, Mich., factory to 39,000 square feet, from 25,000 square feet. The company also added two accumulator-head blow moldin g machines from Graham Engineering Corp. Other equipment added includes grinders, pelletizers and mold changing equipment. Ted Crocker (center), vice president of national accounts, said the company picked Graham because it needed to change colors quickly. Crocker's products include stadium seats, basketball backboards, mail boxes, fuel tanks, 25-gallon drums and reusable chemical shipping containers. Also shown at the Coldwater plant, which opened in 1996, are plant operator Ed Bell (left) and Lincoln Crocker, vice president of manufacturing.
