Nissei Plastics opens first N. American facility

Issue: June 2018

Nissei Plastic Industrial Co. has announced the opening of its new 115,000-square-foot production facility for its subsidiary, Nissei Plastic Machinery America Inc., in San Antonio. The production facility is dedicated to assembly of medium- to large-scale hybrid injection molding machines with clamping forces from 500 tons to 1,440 tons. The main components will be supplied by Nissei plants in Japan, China and Thailand, the company said in a press release, but local procurement from suppliers based in the Americas will increase over time. 

The new site, a $21 million investment, includes a technical center with demonstration machines for customers to test molds and materials.
