Vermont-based manufacturing company increases room for growth
BETHEL, Vt. (June 3, 2014) – GW Plastics is pleased to announce the expansion of its manufacturing facility in Dongguan, China. Early next year GW will relocate their existing operations into a larger, stand alone, building. This new 125,000 square foot building, located within their existing industrial park, will provide the room needed for the continued growth of their business. The new facility is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2015.
GW Plastics – Dongguan supports their customers with in-house tool building, clean room molding and assembly, and global shipping of finished medical devices.
The close proximity of GW’s new facility to its existing operation will allow for business expansion with minimal disruption to its customers and long-tenured workforce. "We are working very closely with our customers to plan the necessary coordination for the transfer," says Benjamin Bouchard, GW Plastics VP of International Business and Managing Director – China. "We are committed to making this move transparent to our customers. Consistency is our strength and we will not sacrifice this during our transition."
In addition to the increased room for growth, the new facility will allow for a much larger in-house tool manufacturing operation and more streamlined production operations. By more than doubling the size of their plant, GW Plastics will be able to significantly expand their room for growth. "We are very excited about the opportunity to move into this larger and more efficient facility, and the advantages it will offer to GW Plastics and our customers," says Bouchard.
