AMA Plastics, a US-based injection moulding company, has been acquired by Westfall Technik, a recently formed global holding company that provides highly productive plastics manufacturing solutions to the medical, packaging and consumer goods industries.
Headquartered in California, AMA Plastics operates in a “world class” manufacturing site with both ISO 8 cleanroom and white room moulding for a variety of applications.
The over 165,000 Ft2 facility currently holds 95 injection moulding machines from 35 to 720 tons of clamp force.
The ISO Class 8 cleanroom currently holds 16 injection moulding machines and will be expanded to include cleanroom assembly.
In a statement, Westfall said AMA Plastics has an excellent track record and provides complementary capabilities and increased scale to the group of companies.
“The AMA facility gives Westfall Technik the size and scale required to execute larger medical and packaging applications already in the Westfall Pipeline and allows for future expansion in the US southwest region. Upgrades are already in process for injection moulding and quality assurance equipment,” read the statement.
AMA Plastics also offers multi-component and vertical moulding as well as innovative automation systems. Over 1.2 megawatts of the total power requirements of the facility are supplied by the 3,500 solar panels installed in 2015.
