A company with ties to 5G connectivity has launched its own plastics and metal components manufacturer.
Dallas-based COMSovereign Holding Corp. announced March 19 that it has converted the recent acquisition of Fast Plastic Parts into a new venture called Sovereign Plastics.
Sovereign Plastics will operate from a 23,000-square-foot Colorado Springs, Colo., building that includes injection molding, light-assembly and packaging lines. The facility will now serve as the material, component manufacturing and supply chain source for ComSovereign's other companies.
ComSovereign makes protective cases, housings and mounting brackets used in radio equipment, power supplies and batteries.
Sovereign's in-house operations will aim to reduce molding times from 120 days to just five. Product delivery times will be cut from months to days.
In a news release, COMSovereign Chairman and CEO Dan Hodges said the new facility "can deliver immediate just-in-time supply chain value to all of our operating companies and is a competitive advantage because it eliminates the need for international manufacturing and large inventories."
The operation employs more than 30 technicians.
COMSovereign Holding Corp. owns a portfolio of communications technology companies specializing in data transmission.
