Neutrex, Inc, a US manufacturer of the Purgex brand of chemically-engineered commercial purging compounds used to clean injection molding, extrusion, and blow molding machines, celebrated a record growth in 2016.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the company has expanded its plant for further growth.
As part of the expansion, a new blending unit was installed in late 2016 at Neutrex's 20,000sq ft facility to increase the production capacity of Purgex by 50%. 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.
A notable aspect of the company's growth as it celebrates its 25th anniversary is that Neutrex has been honored for its exporting accomplishments with two "E-Star Awards" from the US Department of Commerce.
"For a product category that was not widely accepted when we started up, and can still be met with skepticism by plastics processors, we are proud to be celebrating our 25th year in business stronger than ever and are looking forward to a great 2017," said Arthur P. Haag, Founder and President/CEO of Neutrex.
Purgex is an environmentally friendly, safe-to-use, and versatile product line for purging of plastics processing equipment with minimal scrap when changing colors or resins.
