An Israeli molding and assembly firm says it is looking for a representative in the United States.
Sheldan Technologies Ltd., a Nesher, Israel-based company, chose National Manufacturing Week in Chicago as the venue for its first exhibition in the United States, and it came with the hope of finding help to introduce its custom molding to the market, according to Ilan Ben-Meir, managing director.
The company employs 420, most at a molding and assembly plant in China that has 22 injection presses. It maintains design and headquarters operations in Nesher, and is planning to build an assembly plant in Irbid, Jordan, this year. Jordan's labor costs are comparable to China's, he said.
The company plans to mold parts for soft toys in Israel and have the work assembled in Jordan, Ben-Meir said.
