Teel Plastics COVID-19 Response
AEC & Aqua Poly Help Teel Plastics Expand Plastics Facility in Just Four Months, Increasing Production to help Fight COVID-19.
Teel Plastics, LLC manufactures custom precision plastic tubing and profiles that provide multiple solutions for health care, automotive, medical, and industrial sectors.
As a result of a new contract to produce a large volume of swab sticks to fight the global COVID-19 pandemic, Teel Plastics needed to expand their operations and move four existing extrusion lines to a new facility.
Working to meet very aggressive timing, Teel Plastics partnered with AEC and Aqua Poly Equipment Co. to provide a complete, turnkey central material handling and chilling system for the new plant, including project management and installation services.
Teel Plastics was able to get their new plant up and running in record time to continue their critical production of swab sticks. With zero system service interruptions in over a year of full-scale production, over 2 billion have been manufactured since March 2020.
Teel Plastics Expands and Opens New Plant in Record Time, partnering with AEC & Aqua Poly Equipment Co. Providing Single-Source, Material Handling and Chilling System Installation.
In October 2020, Teel Plastics received a new Department of Defense (DoD) contract to ramp up production of swab sticks to fight the global Coronavirus pandemic. To meet this challenge, the company needed to quickly expand its operations by adding numerous injection molding machine lines, and move four existing extrusion lines to an all-new building. AEC and Aqua Poly Equipment Co., a Midwest-based distributor of machinery and equipment to the plastics industry, provided a customized, turnkey central material handling and chilling system for the new building. As part of the project, Aqua Poly & AEC provided complete project management and installation services to help Teel Plastics meet the challenge by getting the new plant up and running in just four months.
