To help with the heightened demand for injection-molded products during the COVID-19 outbreak, Hy-Lite is making their Contract Injection Molding Services available to companies nationwide. Located in Pensacola, Fla., the Hy-Lite facility houses seven injection molding machines capable of small, specialty and slow run projects.
“We understand manufacturers of personal protection equipment and other supplies are running at maximum capacity and are challenged to keep up with demand,” says Steve Beck, plant/technical manager for Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company. “If we can be a small part of the solution in a national emergency, then we want to help.
“We’re offering both the expertise and machinery we have onsite to support the injection molding needs of inventors, plastic parts suppliers, and manufacturers — whether someone needs high volume parts or a small quantity of intricate pieces.”
Beck points out that, while Hy-Lite can’t manufacture safety masks or blow-molded items (such as hand sanitizer bottles), the company has many other options for supporting PPE needs.
“Our team can take on injection molding projects for manufacturers running at capacity, whether it’s supplementing high-demand product production or taking over less-critical secondary lines that have had to be placed on the backburner,” says Beck. “We have three 300-ton, one 390-ton, and three 500-ton machines available at the place for 24/7 operation. This means we can tackle the small quantity runs and slow running parts because the machinery is always ready for projects.”
Hy-Lite services are available on a contracted basis with speedy turnaround. Beck, who has been with Hy-Lite for more than two decades directing the company’s injection molding and manufacturing operations, explains that Hy-Lite can supply products made with most thermoplastics.
“From downstream assembly to packaging and shipping, we make this process turnkey for the customers. We’re a Made in America company that wants to support the plastics needs of America during this difficult time.”
