Injection molder Polymer Technologies Inc. has added six firms to its customer list since opening its new facility in Mexico earlier this year.
The facility in San Luis Potos¡ allows the Cambridge, Ontario-based Polymer Technologies to offer auto suppliers production in a low-cost region, which is required to bid on some contracts, noted Kristi Rimmer, business development manager.
The Mexico site has 10 presses. Polymer Technology's Cambridge headquarters operates 45 presses.
The company specializes in insert and two-shot molding and makes several parts for auto electronics systems. It also is adding wire coil winding this year in Cambridge. Its previous supplier for the process used to add wire to plastic parts relocated to Tunisia, Rimmer said.
