Double H Plastics Inc. is considering a plan to refurbish a building in Tennessee to add capacity for its production of plastic cores.
``We're still negotiating,'' said David Harp, vice president of production for the Warminster-based company.
Harp said that the company is in talks with furniture maker Shelby Williams, part of Commercial Furniture Group Inc., as well as state and local officials to acquire a vacant building in Morristown, Tenn., that it could refurbish for its needs.
Double H has about 340 employees at its plants in Pennsylvania and Marion, Ind.
A new facility will ``help relieve the stress on the other two plants,'' as well as provide a location that is closer to a few of the company's customers, according to Harp.
He is hopeful that Double H can close on the property within the next few weeks and have the building retrofitted by the end of the year.
Double H was founded in 1974. The company manufactures cores for things such as adding machines, cash registers and fax machines. Its Versaform division supplies packaging to the food industry.
