Philadelphia Resins Announces Expansion At Montgomeryville Plant

As the first stage of a major e x p a n s i o n , Philadelphia Resins Corporation, Montgomeryville, Pa., is adding 1,100 square meters (12,000 square feet) to one of its two modern manufacturing and production plants.

"This immediate expansion," David H. Kollock, president of the company stated, "will allow us to transfer some warehousing operations and all finished-product inventories from the Resin Division plant. We need more space in that production facility," he added, "to satisfy present and g r o w i n g requirements for our broad range of marine and industrial resin systems." By expanding the Phillystran Division plant, the company will be able to install a new ropeclosing machine to produce largediameter nonmetallic ropes for heavy-duty marine applications.

It also is capable of handling very long lengths of flexible, nonmetallic rope, regardless of diameter.

The inherent versatility will make the large rope-closing machine a natural complement to P h i l a d e l p h i a Resins' existing equipment for high-speed manufacturing of electrically transparent tower guys, radar and antenna mast stays, and various small diameter working ropes and cables.

The second phase of the expansion program is also underway with the recent purchase of five acres of land, located immediately behind the company's central office facilities. Early in 1982, a new plant with approximately 3,650 square meters (40,000 square feet) of working space will further expand the company's production operations.
