Japan Steel Works America Inc., the injection press supplier in Corona, Calif., has signed up Integrated Plastics Machinery Inc. as its manufacturers' representative covering California, Arizona, Nevada and the maquiladora region of Mexico.
The relationship became effective July 1.
Integrated President Dave Bader said this company is about 10 miles from JSW America.
Integrated Plastics Machinery, which represents a broad range of primary and auxiliary machinery, has a 7,000-square-foot building that includes a training and technology center. Bader said the tech center, which Integrated added about 10 years ago, is important for a West Coast rep firm because customers there don't have to travel as far to see equipment and get training.
“We needed a place to display our machinery,” Bader said. The 2,000-square-foot training and tech center houses three injection molding machines and has a classroom area for seminars, and customer and sales-staff training.
