Custom Profile, Grand Rapids, Michigan, which develops and manufactures specialty thermoplastic profile extrusions and sub-assemblies, has announced that it is investing to expand production capacity and warehouse space at its Juarez, Mexico, operation.
The company recently signed a lease for an additional 27,500-sq.-ft. expansion that will increase the firm’s total space to 77,500 sq. ft. in Juarez. There also are plans to add employees and purchase additional extrusion equipment over time. The Juarez operation consists of tubing and profile extrusion, over-molding and assembly operations. The expansion is driven by the steady growth of its co-extrusion and in-line fabrication business to support the home appliance market.
The company expects to add up to 50 new jobs over time. These include operators and support staffing. Additional co-extrusion equipment for this expansion will be procured to support the demand.
