GW Plastics is proud to announce that we have expanded and upgraded our Process Development & Training Center in Royalton, VT to now develop and debug entire manufacturing cells in a dedicated non-production facility. This expansion comes during the 20th anniversary of the Process Development Center, for which we achieved RJG certification as a Mold Tryout Facility in 2012 and are currently one of eight companies worldwide to have this certification.
The GW Plastics Process Development & Training Center was founded in 1998 to expedite mold testing and qualification and improve overall speed-to-market. Prior to the foundation of the Process Development Center, a production press would need to be used to test new molds, forcing interruptions of scheduled production. To avoid production backlogs and improve speed-to-market, GW Plastics built a dedicated facility for mold testing and process development.
