W. Amsler Equipment Inc., a Canadian supplier of all-electric, linear PET stretch blow molding machines, has announced plans to relocate its headquarters and manufacturing operations to Bolton, ON, later this summer. The new location, designed to meet expanding demands for the company’s growing PET blow molding machine business, will be in the heart of the so-called Plastics Corridor, less than 20 kilometers from the Pearson (Toronto) Airport in Rexdale. The Bolton area is also home to suppliers such as Husky Injection Molding Systems, Athena Automation and many blow molding companies.
W. Amsler, founded in 1994 by Werner Amsler in Concord, ON, has signed a lease agreement for 34,000 square feet of space, which will more than double the company’s current capacity. In addition to corporate offices, the new space will house business development and project management activities, said Heidi Amsler, Marketing Manager. “We’ve experienced rapid growth over the last five years and we’ve outgrown our current space.”
The expanded facility will house sales, engineering, manufacturing and service personnel. It will also accommodate more room for machine development, pilot production and classroom-style training. Easier access to air and rail transportation will make it more convenient for supply partners, customers and vendors, said the company.
In addition to PET stretch blow molding machines, Amsler supplies equipment for complete blow molding plants and filling lines. These products include bottle inspection units, blow-dome spin-off trimmers, air compressors, vacuum conveyors, molds, Gaylord dumpers, mold temperature control units and process chillers.
All equipment, production assets and employees will be transferred from the existing facility in Richmond Hill to Bolton. W. Amsler will occupy the leased space, which is currently undergoing significant renovation, starting Aug. 1.
