KS RIM/RTM Molder Foresees Stronger 2011

February 28, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
OSBORNE, KS With steel prices on the rise and continued innovations in the plastics industry, industry leaders are predicting an upswing in 2011 for plastics manufacturing.

Kansas-based RIM/RTM molder, Osborne Industries, Inc., stands ready to help lead that revival in the plastics industry, said George Eakin, Osborne VP of Operations. "Many OEM companies have continued developing new and improved products during the downturn in order to be prepared to launch them when consumer confidence is restored."

"Osborne Industries has been working with these companies and is poised to help them take the lead over their competition," he said.

Aside from continued industry innovation, the RIM/RTM molder also foresees more manufacturers turning to plastic materials to meet their needs, as steel prices have risen sharply over the past two years.

Many products and designs can benefit from the use of plastics for styling and parts consolidation. Thermosetting plastic materials, like those processed at Osborne Industries, often offer superior strength, stiffness, heat resistance, and impact and corrosion resistance when compared to thermoplastics materials.

Osborne Industries, Inc. is a custom RIM/RTM molder (Reaction Injection Molding/Resin Transfer Molding). For more information on the company's advanced thermoset molding capabilities, visit www.osborneindustries.com.
