After a busy year of expansion, one low-volume injection molder/moldmaker is recognized for its dedication to job creation. Seaway Plastics Engineering was awarded by Florida Governor Rick Scott the Florida Business Ambassador Award (given to individuals/companies for their efforts in creating jobs and opportunities for Florida families) during a presentation ceremony earlier this month.
The award recognized Seaway’s job creating efforts during not only the past year but the past decade and its commitment to providing opportunities to Florida families and having a long-lasting impact on the economy of the local communities. Seaway Plastics was founded in Port Richey, Florida in 1984 and after 30 years in business the company has grown from three people to more 150 employees.
Seaway completed its move into a new 25,000 square foot Engineering Center in January of 2012 and ended the year with the asset purchase of a 17,000 square foot injection molding operation. Further expansion is in the plans.
Seaway believes its growth and job creation ability is a result of the flexibility it offers customers. Depending on customer requirements, they can quickly build all aluminum molds, aluminum and steel combinations, or all steel molds. Basically, they offer customers flexibility to choose from multiple tooling options based on what best fits their project requirements.
