Greenville, SC – April 16, 2019 – Parkway Products, LLC announced today that it has completed a transaction with Injection Technology Corporation Founder and CEO, Carl Morris. The two facilities located in Westminster, SC and Arden, NC, expand Parkway’s Thermoplastic Injection Molding capacity, including large tonnage capability.

“We have been working for quite some time to make this transaction happen and I am pleased that the Itech employees, customers and plants will continue in Parkway’s capable hands,” Carl Morris said of the sale. 

The Westminster and Arden facilities round out Parkway’s geographic presence in the Southeast US and further complement Parkway’s available press clamp tonnage greater than 1,000 tons. “We are excited to add much needed regional capacity to support the growth needs of our clients and look forward to leveraging the combined horsepower of our TN, NC, SC and GA operating teams to service new opportunities,” noted Parkway CEO Al Ridilla.

Parkway plans to align the new facilities with its regional thermoplastic molding centers in Greeneville, TN; Seneca, SC; and Marietta, GA to better serve customers’ needs.  Parkway also houses thermoplastic injection molding in its Ft. Collins, CO and Saltillo, COA, MX facilities.  This transaction increases Parkway’s North American footprint to eleven operations with seven of them focused on thermoplastic injection molding.  Increasing the company’s thermoplastic molding options from five to seven manufacturing facilities not only establishes a substantial Injection Molding business for Parkway, but keeps the company focused on its Thermoplastic roots. Parkway now has 262 molding machines, including 192 thermoplastic injection machines in the tonnage range of 17 – 1,750 tons.
