Primex Design and Fabrication, a subsidiary of Richmond, India-based sheet extruder Primex Plasics Corp., is investing a total of $1.3 million in a new digital printer project, including staff training to expand its product line.
Primex will use the new equipment “to enhance products we previously made, such as point-of-sale displays, retail and food distribution packaging, signage, shipping containers and pouches,” said Doug Borgsdorf, Chief Commercial Officer of Primex in an email to Plastics News. “All of this is based on our sustainable and returnable packaging solutions.”
“The ability to digitally print our products will greatly enhance our customers’ ability to mark while protecting their valuable parts,” added Borgsdorf.
The company expects the project to create six new full-time jobs.
“We have a group of employees who are embracing the technology,” Borgsdorf said in a July 12 press release from the Economic Development Corp. of Wayne County, Indiana.
The company will receive a $20,000 economic development grant from EDC that it can use to purchase new equipment or provide training for new and existing employees.
“These EDIT funds will go directly to training and developing our amazing team to ensure a sustainable future for our community,” Borgsdorf said in the statement.
