MMG is partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Easton on Caps For Kids. We are teaching boys and girls ages 5-15 about plastics and recycling. By collecting plastic bottle caps the Boys and Girls club can have them recycled into park benches, planters, picnic tables etc to create a usable outdoor area at their facility.
If you would like to help collect caps, contact MMG for more info.

Increased Production Capacity to Support Growing Demand for Boltaron® 9000 Series FAR-Rated Thermoplastic Sheet Materials for Aircraft Interiors
Newcomerstown, Ohio (May 3, 2018) – Boltaron Inc – A SIMONA Company announced today that it will start operations of a new and fourth extrusion line in the third quarter of 2018. The increased manufacturing capacity will support Boltaron’s growing market share as a supplier of high performance thermoplastic materials to the aerospace industry.
The new extrusion line will be dedicated to producing the Boltaron® 9000 Series of materials which meet the FAA’s regulatory requirements for flammability, smoke, and heat release, FAR 25.853(a) and (d).

“We’ve been training our operations team for the past nine months in anticipation of the line starting up,” said Asti. The added production capacity will also result in an increase of Boltaron’s full time workforce.
In addition to the new extrusion equipment, Boltaron has made significant investments to optimize its manufacturing efficiency to better service its customers. This includes a new, fully automated, expanded triple-capacity blending system that supports the extrusion lines and maintains quality and consistency.
“Boltaron’s continued investment in equipment expansion is based on the success of the 9000 series products. Our strategic approach is to be a reliable, innovative supplier of consistent, high impact resistant materials that incorporate customized textures, metallics, pearlescents, and special effects,” said Adam Mellen, CSO and VP of Sales and Marketing.
