Processing equipment manufacturer KraussMaffei Corporation has entered into a strategic partnership in the U.S. with mold manufacturer Proper Group International, designed to deliver turnkey solutions to the polyurethane North American marketplace.

As part of the new partnership, KraussMaffei is moving from its 25,000-square-foot polyurethane tooling facility in Novi, Mich., to a new 50,000-square-foot centre located in Warren,Mich., adjacent to Proper Group’s corporate headquarters.
