Greene, Tweed expands manufacturing capacity optimization of Arlon® 1160 tube stock shapes less than 4″ OD

Greene Tweed & Co, has determined the need to transition its Injection Molding production for Arlon 1160 Tube stock less than 4” OD from our Kulpsville, Pennsylvania plant to Houston,Texas. This site has previously been qualified for the Injection Molding of Arlon.

Strong industry demand to minimize lead time without affecting cost has resulted in the need to re‐balance products within Greene Tweed’s qualified manufacturing sites. This strategy enables Greene Tweed to better optimize global manufacturing capacity and utilization. We will continue to use approved compounds and processing methods, therefore no changes to our Arlon compound name is required.

Start of Production, January 3rd 2017.
