Demand for Pittsfield Plastics’ custom molding services, particularly for its large press capabilities (500 ton and 700 ton), is growing. President/CEO Tom Walker said improvements in the residential and commercial building markets (for products such as electrical and communications wire and cable) and for the medical device market (custom plastic parts) account for some of the increase.
Pittsfield Plastics underwent a major plant upgrade recently. A shiny new floor, which involved grinding the old floor down until they got to the base level, then adding a glossy new protective coating, contributed to a cleaner, more efficient and even safer plant. The walls also got a new coat of paint.

Pittsfield Plastics added a robot to pick “runners” out of the production line on a 300-ton injection molding press. The robot picks parts out of the line, supporting manufacturing employees as they meet customer demand and ship product out on time every time. The company eventually plans to add larger robots that will pull parts off the press and stack them on pallets and will steadily add more robots to its production process to help employees and facilitate continued sales growth.
Pittsfield Plastics’ slicer got an upgrade so it can cut larger barrel sizes many customers want: it can now cut up to an 8″ inside diameter barrel. Call to learn more — 413-442-0067.

Other applications for the spool family are coaxial cable, speaker wire, THHN wire, CATV wire, hose, tubing, and chain.
