ZL ENGINEERING PLASTICS UNVEILS NEW STOCK SHAPE MANUFACTURING FACILITY IN LENEXA, KS

October 4, 2012

New Extrusion Capability is First Phase of Strategic Growth Plan in North America 
  

ZL Engineering Plastics Inc. has started up a new extrusion facility at its Lenexa, KS, site in response to growing North American demand for its extensive range of stock shape products (sheet, rod, tube, film). The new production capability is the first phase of a strategic plan to grow the stock shape business in North America. Previously, stock shapes were manufactured in Kaprun, Austria, by ZL Engineering Plastics’ parent company, Zell-Metall GmbH Engineering Plastics. The new extrusion facility enables ZL Engineering Plastics, Inc. to meet increasing customer demand while also reducing lead times in North America.

ZL Engineering Plastics Inc., based in Lenexa, KS, is a leading manufacturer of stock shape products made of engineering plastics including acetal, PET, nylon, PEEK, and PEI. These products, which are produced in sheet, rod, and tube stock shapes, are machined for use in a broad range of applications in the aerospace, food processing, automotive, medical, agriculture, and construction industries. ZL Engineering Plastics is a subsidiary of Zell-Metall GmbH Engineering Plastics in Kaprun, Austria, which is a unit of the Klepsch Group. It operates warehouses and service centers in Lenexa, KS, and Buena Park, CA.
