WOLFEBORO — Work is underway on GI Plastek's $3 million building expansion at its plant on Wickers Drive.
"I am very excited about the opportunities that this expansion will bring and how it will transform the way that we work and how much more competitive we will become,'' says Daniel Mills, president of the firm which employs 96 workers.
GI Plastek, founded in 1982, is a custom molder of structural foam and injection molded plastic parts. In addition to its custom molding base, the company is a fully integrated manufacturer with assembly and secondary finishing operations that include painting, shielding, silk-screening, inserting, and bonding.
The company is expanding its current 56,000 square foot manufacturing floor to 91,000 square feet, allowing the addition of more state-of-the-art medium and large injection molding presses, as well as warehouse space.
Mills said ''GI Plastek fully recognizes that manufacturing is still the largest industry in New Hampshire. And with the escalation of technology, there is and will continue to be a surging demand for manufacturers that have state-of-the-art capabilities and a highly skilled workforce to successfully partner with its customers.''
