LONG BEACH, CALIF. — Demand for its Iceman brand of portable chillers and mold heating and cooling equipment has prompted the Mokon Division of Protective Closures Co. Inc. to build a 10,000-square-foot addition to its factory in Buffalo, N.Y.
Mokon plans to occupy the new space this spring.
``We were already over capacity,'' Thomas Valentine, Mokon's vice president of sales and marketing, said at the Western Plastics Expo.
The expansion will allow Mokon to make larger chillers, Valentine said. He declined to provide the size of Mokon's current manufacturing area. Mokon also is not disclosing how much it is spending on the expansion. Its sister company, Protective Closures, is an injection molder.
