Custom injection molder C&M Manufacturing Inc. of Salt Lake City was damaged by a fire early March 26.
A Salt Lake City Fire Department spokeswoman said dispatchers took a call at 3:32 a.m. local time and that about two dozen firefighters responded to the two-alarm incident. No one was present in the facility at the time and there were no injuries.
About half of C&M's 17,500 square feet of space was extensively damaged, Audra Sorensen told Plastics News. Firefighters were still on the scene by midday March 26 to try to find the cause of the blaze.
C&M has been in business for more than 25 years, according to its website. Its early business was mainly molding race car accessories.
C&M focuses on small to medium size parts molded from ABS and its blends, polypropylene, polystyrene, nylon and engineering resins. It operates 10 injection presses with clamping forces from 60 to 310 tons. The company also does CNC machining.
