Monroe, MI – February 12, 2012 – Monroe Mold and sister company R&B Plastics Machinery LLC will unveil latest developments and a mix of products for the blow molding and extrusion markets at the National Plastics Expo (NPE) to be held April 1-5 in Orlando, FL. Monroe Mold specializes in extrusion blow molds and tooling used throughout the packaging industry. The company also manufactures industrial-application molds.
Products on display at Booth #979W include:
“The family of R&B blow-molding machines and extrusion blow molds from Monroe Mold provide a combined product line distinct from any OEM in the industry,” explained Al Hodge, president of R&B Holdings Co. LLC, parent company to both Monroe Mold and R&B Plastics Machinery.
This steady increase created a need for a larger shop with new technologies. The company is in the midst of a building expansion to add more manufacturing space for equipment, an engineering center, materials storage and staff.
“Monroe Mold has a certified apprenticeship program for developing mold makers which enables us to provide true value to customers. We are proud of their expertise and look forward to adding new employees to further expand Monroe Mold’s capabilities,” said Jim Ghesquire, president of Monroe Mold.
“We’re told it’s tough to find capable U.S. companies to repair extrusion blow molds and deliver in a timely manner. Monroe Mold has a strong reputation due to its experienced mold-building staff and their abilities to make timely, difficult repairs on complex molds. Their increase in business underlines the company’s skills in designing and manufacturing sophisticated blow molds. A commitment to good service/support keeps customers’ production schedules on track and keeps them coming back”, Hodge explained.
Monroe Mold and R&B Plastics Machinery serve customers in diverse packaging markets such as food/beverage, agricultural chemicals, motor oil/lubricants, personal care, medical/pharmaceuticals, household cleaners/detergents and more. The molds and machines also are used in the automotive, industrial/commercial markets and other applications.
