Royal Technologies Corp. plans a $14 million expansion of its manufacturing operation in Cullman, Alabama. The project is expected to create 25 jobs.
The company produces polymer products, primarily plastic and foam, for the automotive, furniture and consumer goods industries. The 176,000-square-foot expansion will allow for the addition of plastic injection molding lines.
“When a company chooses to expand in your community, it is a reinforcement of their original decision to locate there,” said Cullman Economic Development Agency Director Dale Greer.
Greer said Royal Technologies also has gotten business with several new Alabama manufacturers in recent months, which shows the state’s recruitment efforts have paid off for existing companies.
Hudsonville, Michigan-based Royal Technologies has invested nearly $27 million since starting up its Cullman facilities in 2010. Its plant is along Interstate 65, halfway between Birmingham and Huntsville.
“Cullman County has a rich economic landscape, where companies continue to prosper,” said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “We congratulate Royal Technologies on their success in Cullman, and we look forward to many years of future growth.”
