Bergen International To Establish Manufacturing Facility In Elgin, Illinois
The new facility includes a new extrusion line complete with updated material handling equipment, and enables Bergen International to double its manufacturing and production capabilities. The new building also houses a state-of-the-art laboratory facility. In addition, Bergen said it has increased their production, laboratory, shipping and receiving staff.
The company’s chemical foaming agents, Foamazol, Foamazol XO, and Foamazol XOP, are available for use in most plastic applications such as pipe, profile and sheet extrusion; injection, structural foam, and rotational molding; blown and extruded films; wire and cable extrusion; blow molded containers; polypropylene ribbon extrusion and others.
Chief Financial Officer, Richard Long said: "We are very pleased to add this new facility and increase our production capacity. This new facility, combined with additional shipping and receiving personnel will ensure that we are able to meet the increased demand for our Foamazol, Foamazol XO, and Foamazol XOP chemical foaming agent products.”
“This will also allow us to better service new markets for these CFAs. The addition of new laboratory staff and facilities allows us to have a greater ability to develop custom products for our customers, and to tailor existing products to specific customer applications. As we approach the end of our 15th anniversary in business, Bergen looks forward to continuing our focus exclusively on the manufacture of chemical foaming agents for the Plastics Industry," he added.
