O’FALLON, MO-Permian Plastics, a plastics injection molder, has expanded the size and capacity of its manufacturing plant, adding 15,000 square feet to its existing 22,500-square-foot facility near St. Louis, MO. The company has invested more than $750,000 in additional production and warehousing space and equipment-including pad printing, sub assembly, expanded sonic welding capability, several more injection molding machines and upgraded robotics and automation capabilities.

Permian’s customer base is comprised of the healthcare, food, optical, electronics, cosmetic and consumer industries.

Permian Chief Executive Officer Dale Emge says the company has experienced rapid growth despite the industry’s current economic challenges. Permian’s business plan calls for a focus on clients who have high-precision requirements while avoiding traditional industries such as automotive and large appliance.

“Our clients come to us with complex engineering problems,” says Emge. “Our design and technical teams are uniquely qualified to deliver creative engineering solutions that usually surprise our clients with high performance that is competitively priced.” The company employs a team of mechanical engineers and designers who can support creative development, 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) and produce mockups with very short lead times.
