GW Plastics is proud to announce the 10th anniversary of our subsidiary, GW Silicones! Founded in 2008 in our Royalton, Vermont technology campus, GW Silicones has grown into one of North America’s largest and most respected silicone providers offering highly-automated Class 8 cleanroom molding and assembly with in-house tooling.
When we made the decision in 2008 to open GW Silicones and offer Liquid Injection Molding (LIM), we knew we needed to be completely committed. We invested in the critical expertise and technology that a successful LIM business requires in order to extend our industry-leading design and manufacturing capabilities and seamlessly integrate GW Silicones into our robust technical portfolio of comprehensive process capabilities. We hired two highly-experienced LIM industry veterans, Mark Hammond and Jeff Hazen, to launch GW Silicones and ensure that the new division would meet the high standard of expertise and service our customers expect.
Starting with just one molding machine in our Process Development Center, Mark and Jeff quickly grew GW Silicones into a stand-alone, state-of-the art facility supplying market-leading OEMs with precision silicone solutions.
