Renco Corporation of Manchester, Massachusetts, an industry leading producer and supplier of drybox gloves, drybox accessories, laboratory gloves, and contamination control products, will expand its rubber and plastics fabrication facility in Colebrook, New Hampshire. The facility operates under the name American Performance Polymers.
The plant has current capacity for 40,000,000 gloves per year along with customizable balloon dip-lines, PVC molding, warehousing, and packaging with the existing manufacturing lines.
American Performance Polymers will add capacity to the 100,000 square foot facility as sales increase. The plant resides in a HUB-Zone and a Free-Trade Zone and should employ 20-30 people at its current capacity.
According to company officials, “this expansion is consistent with the company’s growth strategy. It will enable Renco to continue to serve their existing broad spectrum of products for customers by adding high volume production of nitrile gloves, rubber and plastic parts along with custom dipping and formulation development services.”
“We are all extremely excited by the tremendous opportunity this facility will provide for enhancing and expanding our product line and fulfilling the needs of our existing and future clients,” said Richard Renehan, CEO of Renco Corporation.
With a broad array of products serving a wide variety of customers, Renco will take full advantage of the unique polymer formulations, enhanced quality control, and highly customizable options for their product lines, officials said. “Renco has always been a reliable provider for us. This new capacity and functionality will allow us to continue our long-standing relationship,” said Hank Rahe from Containment Technologies Group.
