Neutrex Celebrates Anniversary, Growth

Plastics Business

In announcing its 25th anniversary, Neutrex, Houston, Texas, reported record growth during the past year, fueling plant expansion and new hires. The company specializes in the development, manufacture and worldwide distribution of the Purgex® brand of chemically-engineered commercial purging compounds used to clean injection molding, extrusion and blow molding machines.

As part of the expansion, a new blending unit was installed in late 2016 at Neutrex’s 20,000-square-foot facility to increase the production capacity of Purgex by 50 percent. Office space was augmented, and a fully-equipped new chemistry lab was added to supplement testing on an injection molding machine in the Neutrex technical laboratory.

Neutrex has been honored for its exporting accomplishments with two “E-Star Awards” from the U.S. Department of Commerce. Purgex is sold in more than 50 countries through a worldwide network of distributors. In addition, the company has a 25-year accident-free record.
