GW Silicones continues to invest in its operations, doubling the size of its clean room space, adding machinery and providing services from design to tooling to manufacturing.
“In late summer we basically doubled the size of our Class 8 clean room space for silicone molding,” noted Mark Hammond, general manager of Royalton, Vt.-based GW Silicones, in a telephone interview.
Hammond said that it was a continuation of a program started in 2015 to enlarge the Royalton campus of its parent GW Plastics Inc. It also includes mold making, a tech center, plastics operations and warehouse space.
He did not disclose the number of molding machines but noted that “we received multiple machines this year and await more to arrive.
“We saw an uptick in overmolding projects with silicone on plastics,” he said, noting that GW Silicones has increased its capacity.
