In 2015, as part of our ongoing strategy to grow business and strengthen our competitive advantage, Myers Industries’ company Akro-Mils
focused on streamlining its plastics production operation from two facilities down to one. The yearlong project included relocating 5 of 11 production presses from its Sandusky, Ohio plant to its Wadsworth, Ohio plant, and moving one press to sister company Buckhorn, Inc’s plant in Springfield, Mo. The remaining machines were decommissioned. This new operating model will increase Akro-Mils manufacturing efficiencies, decrease overhead and production costs, and support a streamlined distribution model as we move into 2016 and beyond.
