A new injection molder is on the scene in Wyoming with Central Custom Molding LLC opening its doors.
The company has a veteran crew that CEO Lyle Sampson says has a combined 140 years of experience in the plastic industry.
“I was born and raised in the plastic industry. I come from a family that has been in the industry since 1968,” said Sampson, who also is chief operating officer of Kent Systems LLC in Loveland, Colo.
Kent Systems, which is owned by Lyle and his wife Linda Sampson, makes fittings, couplings, media bags and tubing and does some custom molding as well.
Sampson said Kent Systems has been turning away business, and that’s why they went looking for a site to do custom molding. They decided on Cheyenne because of its friendly business environment, its location, multiple transportation options and a dry climate beneficial to injection molding.
The Sampsons are joining with Ryan Sutton, who is COO, and Jeff Galindo, the business development director, as owners of the new entity. Lyle Sampson’s father and mentor, Kent Sampson, will be a board member.
Central Custom Molding is leasing a 10,000 square foot space and is currently test running four injection molding machines. He expects to have a total of six presses. The machines, exclusively Nissei, range from 7 to 180 tons of clamping force. They will be using a lot of automation, with plans to operate 24 hours, seven days a week.
Sampson sees opportunities in many industries, including aerospace, sporting goods and health care.
CHEYENNE, WYO (June 14, 2016) – Central Molding has opened a state-of-the-art injection molding production facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Central Molding is a new company, with an experienced team, looking forward to doing business in Cheyenne. The new business is located on the west side of Cheyenne at 314 Evelyn St.
“Central Molding chose Wyoming due to the State’s friendly business environment and cost effectiveness for manufactures.” They chose Cheyenne because of its, “central location, multiple transposition options and the dry climate, which is beneficial to injection molding.”
The injection molding process requires the use of an injection molding machine, raw plastic material, and a mold. The plastic is melted in the injection molding machine and then injected into the mold, where it cools and solidifies into the final part.
Custom Molding’s factory floor is designed to run 24-hours a day, seven days a week. This is made possible by using a combination of quality equipment and robotic automation.
“Ethics is an important part of the business for us. Both in how we treat our customers and in the quality of the products we produce,” Lyle Sampson said.
Central Molding looks forward to producing products for local, national and international companies.
