ATTLEBORO, USA, 5 September 2017
CMT Materials, the leading provider of plug-assist materials for the thermoforming industry, has announced the expansion of production capabilities at its Attleboro, Mass. headquarters to keep pace with global demand for its leading plug-assist products HYTAC® syntactic foam.
We continue to see a steady increased demand for our tough, thermoplastic plug materials. Over the last nine months, dating back to the 2016 K show last October, the company has seen a global increase in new projects, new machinery purchases, and new tooling deliveries. “We are doing our part to maintain rapid response times for our worldwide network of distributors and customers.” says Conor Carlin, Sales and Marketing Manager for CMT Materials.
Last October, CMT added a second shift in Attleboro and increased production capacity by 30%. The recent expansion also includes a capital investment in three new ovens. In addition to productions assets, CMT continues to refine its manufacturing process to improve efficiencies. In January, the company earned ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
