A move to a much bigger plant gives CRG Logics Inc. room for efficient production, plus a new research and development laboratory, for its resin-conveying systems and gravimetric blending equipment.
CRG Logics, founded last year, is moving from a 4,000-square-foot plant in Greenville, Wis., to a 32,000-square-foot building in Appleton, Wis. The company's headquarters is in Lake Bluff, Ill.
The lab will expand CRG Logics' efforts to develop new machinery for its core market, film and sheet extrusion, President Carl Gillig said at Plastics Encounter Indianapolis, where the company exhibited. Gillig said CRG, which employs 11, expects to double its sales this year.
Gillig started CRG Logics as a spinoff from sister company CRG Systems Inc. CRG Systems used to rebuild blending and conveying systems, but now is a manufacturers' representative for CRG Logics and others including Davis-Standard, Erema, Kndig and Polymer Systems. The company covers Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa.
In other news, CRG Logics promoted Mike Rasner from engineering manager to regional sales manager.
The equipment maker also signed new manufacturers' representatives: Dandar Enterprises Inc. of Marietta, Ga., will cover Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Alabama and Tennessee; and W.E. Sales & Services of Pepper Pike, Ohio, will sell in Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.
