The planned addition will allow Plastican to further develop its line of proprietary molding technologies and to expedite manufacturing processes for several new patented packaging concepts such as a new series of twist and lock containers, and new additions to its line of environmentally favorable lightweight containers. Plastican’s R&D investment will also expand its capabilities to test next generation heat transfer labeling. The new facility will include two new molding machines dedicated to R&D as well as additional personnel assigned to R&D projects.
