Colorado’s Intertech Medical has added five new injection molding presses and expects to add up to another four machines to keep up with a growth in sales.
The Denver-based molder, part of Intertech Plastics Inc., said in a March 23 news release that it expects the new presses will add up to a 50 percent increase in molding capacity.
With more and more medical devices coming out of the Rocky Mountain region, Intertech sees a big potential for growth and is confident that increased sales and production will be a continuing trend, said Jim Kepler, vice president of operations for Intertech Plastics and Intertech Medical in a statement.
In addition to the Toyo all-electric presses, Intertech said it will increase staff by 25 percent. The bulk of those positions will be “more technical in nature and require higher level skill sets than previous job openings.”


Those jobs will include engineering personnel, quality, technicians, programmers, tool and die makers, machine operators, material handlers and administrative staff.
Other upgrades in Denver will focus on improving the medical clean room facilitiy, with improvements to the quality lab and the plant’s processing water cooling system.
Intertech Plastics created Intertech Medical when it purchased Image Molding in 2013.
