Crestwood Industries, a custom molder based in Mundelein, Illinois, has recently expanded its operations with the purchase of four new LS Mtron injection molding machines. The company is in the midst of a $1.2 million expansion that includes the LS Mtron machines, robotics, an automated screen-printing line and customized software.
“We are growing and developing new business, especially in the medical industry,” said Crestwood President Des Paden.
When deciding on what machines to purchase, Crestwood interviewed numerous suppliers and decided on LS Mtron for the company’s expertise in all-electric machines and their fast delivery times.
“We are moving towards using all-electric molding machines in our plant, and LS Mtron had a very strong value proposition,” said Paden. “We like the fact that they have local parts and service. Plus, we have older LG machines from 1995 and 1996 that are still running that we recently upgraded. We’ve always been happy with their performance and the company’s service.”
The four new WIZ-E series all-electric LS Mtron machines are 120, 190, 240 and 310 tons.
