HOUSTON (Aug. 12, 1:15 p.m. ET) — Neutrex Inc. announced Aug. 12 that it plans to boost capacity for its Purgex purging compounds by 50 percent.
The Houston company has outgrown its present space, and the new expanded facilities will be on-stream by the end of 2011, the firm said in a news release. The expansion will include additional manufacturing and warehousing capability, and will give the company flexibility to develop new products.
“As we grow, a high level of R&D activity will continue,” said President Arthur Haag.
Haag introduced Purgex in 1992 to clean injection molding and extrusion equipment during color and material changeovers, and as part of routine or preventive maintenance.
