Spriatex Expansion
Spiratex, a southeast Michigan-based custom thermoplastic extrusion manufacturer, is doubling the size of its Monroe-area Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) manufacturing facility.

The project includes a 48,000-square-foot addition to the manufacturing operation, 17 new production lines and a 3,000-square-foot office expansion.

The expansion will allow Spiratex to respond to the growing demand for UHMWPE extrusions and conveyor guiderail production. Strong growth in custom extrusions, combined with increasing demand for standard components, is driving the expansion.

Founded in 1955, Spiratex is an industry leader in polyurethane and UHMWPE extrusion, and manufactures products worldwide in virtually any thermoplastic material.

“The Monroe plant expansion project allows us to keep up with growing demand for our extrusion services,” said Garry Markle, chief operating officer of Spiratex. “The downturn in the economy has forced many companies to lower their inventories and buying domestic reduces transit times. With this business model, Spiratex is increasing its capacity to allow shorter lead-times and more production schedule flexibility, which increases our customers’ ability to operate on leaner inventories.”
