In order to keep up with rising customer demand, Drake Plastics designed and built a new facility 15 minutes from our old location in Cypress, Texas. Manufacturing at this location is focused on extruded Torlon Products. Sales and service for extruded specialty PEEK products from our San Antonio plant (Drake Research) are also coordinated from here. We moved in May 2004, shutting down production for one day.
Key features include 11,600 sq ft of office, manufacturing and warehouse space; making our new plant the largest Torlon dedicated facility in the world. The facility is located on 12 acres to accommodate future growth. The facility is laid out to facilitate the smooth flow of material through our lean manufacturing system.
