CHICAGO (Aug. 1, 2:20 p.m. EDT) — Auxiliary equipment maker Proc-ess Control Corp. of Atlanta has entered the injection molding market with dryers that were redesigned and downsized from extrusion units in PCC's core niche.
PCC decided in 2002 to tackle the larger injection molding field.
Jim Martin joined the firm in early 2003 as vice president of sales for the newly formed molding division and has retained 25 domestic sales representatives.
In addition, PCC started a powder division and is seeking a sales manager to head up the powder feeder line.
The company introduced a D Series desiccant dryer, a hopper dryer able to dry hygroscopic materials, a line of powder feeders, PT Series floor-level tilt table and HS Series indoor resin storage bins.
A unit, Process Control GmbH in Birstein, Germany, handles assembly and light manufacturing duties.
Process Control Corp. was established in 1967, employs 120 and had 2002 sales of more than $15 million.
