The East Jordan, Mich.-based company has been providing injection molded products for about four years, according to Nathan Diller, East Jordan's recycling manager, and is in the process of increasing its capacity in its South Haven, Mich., facility to meet customer demand. He said the company does not provide specific information about its production capabilities.
East Jordan gained approval Oct. 6 from the South Haven City Council for a 12-year, 50 percent tax break on the purchase of $1.2 million in new equipment. The local paper said that the money is being used for new injection molding equipment and for robotic loading and unloading equipment.
The company is family owned and has been in business since 1947. It started making plastic containers in 1962. East Jordan is among the largest horticultural thermoformers in North America, supplying containers to a variety of venues including greenhouses, nursing and garden centers. The company is also known for its recycling program in which it takes back used containers and turns them into material that can be reused.
It has facilities in East Jordan, South Haven and Beaverton, Mich.
