Wentworth Mold Inc., a division of Wentworth Technologies Co.,Mississauga, ON, has opened a new manufacturing facility for PET shell blow molds in Poniatowa, Poland. The plant, which has been running since January 2004, is operated on the company’s SuperCELL concept, a design and production method dedicated to the manufacturing of PET quick-change (shell) blow molds.
The operation is supplying customers in Eastern and Western Europe, and has recently expanded its deliveries to customers in North America and Mexico. The plant recently manufactured and delivered a set of 17 shell molds in less than five weeks for a major PET molder of CSD beverage bottles in Mexico.
"This is a significant investment for us and highlights the benefits of lean manufacturing operations in a very demanding market," said Charles Carey, senior vice president, Packaging Mold Group at Wentworth Mold. "We plan to continue with future investment of SuperCELL operations in Poland and elsewhere in the world."
