Injection molder Nypro Inc. plans to double the size of its facility north of Chicago and add 60 jobs, according to local reports.
The company will add 78,154 square feet to its facility in Gurnee, Ill., bringing the total to 169,154 square feet.
Nypro has been in expansion mode in 2016, acquiring Plasticos Castella, a European container injection molder, in February, and opening a 137,000-square-foot facility in Mebane, N.C., in June.
Clinton, Mass.-based Nypro, which was purchased by Jabil Circuit Inc. in 2013, ranked No. 7 in Plastics News’ most recent survey of North American injection molders, with estimated sales of $ 690 million.
