Metuchen, NJ – January 15, 2016: C+K Plastics, Inc., a leading manufacturer of thermoformed plastic products and assemblies for the aerospace, medical, agricultural equipment, refrigeration, petroleum, and other industries, recently completed its purchase of a new manufacturing facility in Conyers, Georgia.
The 95,000 ft2 facility is situated east of Atlanta with easy access to Interstate 20. It will mirror the equipment and capabilities found in the company’s Metuchen, New Jersey plant, enabling C+K to deliver the same level of manufacturing expertise to a growing market.
“It’s all about proximity,” says C+K’s President, Bob Carrier. “As our customer base expanded in the southeast, we realized that a local presence would dramatically improve our ability to serve those clients. This move gives us a state-of-the-art thermoforming facility in the heart of what is becoming a key marketplace.”
C+K’s Vice President Sales and Marketing, David Grice points out that the move will also give the company strategic and operational advantages.
“Conyers has the added benefit of being a very cost-effective area,” he says. “We needed to grow, and this move will let us be even more competitive. What’s more, being close to a primary interstate and airport means shorter leadtimes.”
“There’s a wealth of skilled workers in and around Atlanta,” Carrier adds. “We now have access to top-notch CNC operators, maintenance mechanics, engineers, and others. As we continue to expand in Georgia, that labor pool will become increasingly important.”
C+K Plastics, Inc. is recognized as one of the most experienced thermoforming companies in the market today. The company serves a broad range of markets, including aerospace, agriculture, food service, refrigeration, and others. The Metuchen, New Jersey-based enterprise couples its offerings with those of its affiliates, Valley Extrusions (of Allentown, Pennsylvania) and C+K Plastics Georgia.
