Maguire plans year-long celebration of 50,000th blender sale
Auxiliary equipment maker Maguire Products Inc. is on course to ship the 50,000th Maguire gravimetric blender at some point within the next few months, and is using the occasion to kick off a year-long celebration.
A special copper-plated blender will be on display at the Maguire booth at the upcoming Chinaplas 2016 trade show, to be held April 25-28; and during the next year the blender will be on display at local events around the world as the company’s agents and their customers mark the milestone sale.
“The Maguire blender is the world’s most widely used gravimetric blender, employed in every type of molding, extrusion, and compounding process and in markets ranging from automotive to wire and cable,” said Hubert Nerlich, managing director of Maguire Products Asia Pte Ltd. “When Maguire president and chief designer Steve Maguire developed the first gravimetric batch blender in 1989, he revolutionized the way raw materials are metered into the plastics processing machine.”
Founded in 1977, Maguire Products is headquartered in Aston, Pa., and operates six manufacturing facilities in the Aston area. The company’s Canadian affiliate, Maguire Canada, is located in Concord, Ont.
