MGS adds capabilities to Mexico facility

MGS Mfg. Group, the Germantown-based injection molder and engineering firm, has implemented continuous extrusion shuttle blow molding at its TecStar facility in Mexico, one of the company’s four production molding facilities.

In addition to offering injection molding, combined with assembly and other secondary operations, TecStar de Mexico has added blow molding services.

"Implementing blow molding at TecStar de Mexico brings progressive technology to the Mexican market," said MGS vice president Dave Sansone. "The blow molding capabilities will generate new business and create the potential for future expansion."

Production space has been allocated for a second blow molding cell, which the company intends to acquire in the near future.

TecStar de Mexico, located in Chihuahua, Mexico, was acquired by MGS Mfg. Group in January 2008. MGS Mfg. Group’s other production molding facilities are located in Wisconsin and Illinois.
