Ontario-based resin supplier Simcoe Plastics Ltd. has expanded its product portfolio by moving into machinery sales.
The firm, which is headquartered in Shanty Bay, Ont., is now representing machinery vendor APSX LLC of Cincinnati, Ohio, by selling its APSX-PIM desktop injection molding machine in Canada.
“This marks the first time in our history that machinery will be part of our product offerings,” said Simcoe Plastics’ president Kurt Stahle. “The APSX-PIM slots perfectly between the one-off flexibility of 3D printing and the large volume production of typical full scale injection molding. The unit is well-suited for low-cost prototyping, small volume runs of small parts, and economic accessibility of mass production to low-volume applications. Representing APSX LLC allows us to tap into a new segment of the plastics industry in Canada, while leveraging our knowledge and resin supply capabilities.”
Simcoe Plastics was founded in 1980.
