Thursday, June 18, 2020; Shelby Township, MI — JVIS is proud to announce the acquisition of the MollerTech facility located in Shelby Township, MI. After careful consideration, MollerTech announced its intent to exit the injection molding business in order to solely focus on other core businesses. After intensive discussions with several interested companies, MollerTech identified and chose JVIS, stating that JVIS was considered to be a “profound and experienced partner for injection molding” in the automotive industry.
MollerTech and JVIS personnel are continuing to work together to transition current programs and ensure that current customers will be supplied on time and with good quality.
This acquisition also expands the breadth of our molding capabilities adding Low-Pressure Molding (LPM) to the JVIS process portfolio. This allows a component to be molded with textile decorative trim in a single step. This process can be used in a wide range of applications such as trim for pillars, rear shelves, doors, etc.
With this acquisition, MollerTech employees — and the existing, approximately 120,000-square-foot facility in Shelby Township, MI — will now become part of JVIS. Mario Hartleb will be operating the facility as Plant Manager. This facility is now the third JVIS location in Shelby Township and has already been coined “Shelby 3” (13877 Teresa Drive, Shelby Township, Mi 48315). With this facility being close to both our JVIS headquarters and the majority of automotive manufacturers, we will be able to offer even more localized support.
We would like to welcome all the new employees to the JVIS team!
