Injection and blow molder Falcon Plastics Inc. has added office space to its plant in Brookings, S.D., and relocated its headquarters from across town into the new area.
Previously, administrative personnel worked out of about 2,000 square feet. The new, 5,000-square-foot accommodations have upgraded systems, a conference room and a "Zoom room" for video conferencing, marketing manager Karissa Kopecky said Sept. 21 by phone.
The relocation was completed the week of Sept. 19. The company is keeping the same phone numbers and email addresses.
Falcon makes products for the electronics, medical, consumer, sporting goods, automotive/industrial and construction markets.
In addition to the Brookings site, the third-generation, family-owned company has injection molding plants in Madison, S.D.; Lexington, Tenn.; and Tigard, Ore. It gained the Tigard plant — and a 40 percent interest in a facility in Suzhou, China — in its 2019 purchase of Poly-Cast Inc.
The lion's share of Falcon's sales come from injection molding. With 103 presses, the company pegged those sales at $58 million in 2022. Both South Dakota plants also do blow molding, producing 2022 sales of about $4.5 million, with eight machines.
Falcon also has plans to add blow molding capability to its Lexington plant, which it expanded in 2021.
The company employs 280. It also does in-house tooling and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) foam processing.
