Molded Fiber Glass Construction Products Breaks Into New Market

04 September 2012

Molded Fiber Glass Construction Products (MFG CP) began producing Fan Shrouds second quarter of 2012, devices which are typically used to cool down hot surfaces in the automotive and agricultural industries.

According to MFG CP, its fan shrouds were fibreglass produced using its hand layup process for two different customers. The larger fan shroud was manufactured for a leading manufacturing in the off-highway vehicles.  The greater than 80” diameter fan shroud is currently being used on mining equipment to cool the radiator. 

MFG CP explains that additional fan shrouds produced are being utilised in hog and chicken houses.  “MFG CP for many years has focused in the construction market making columns forms, pan and waffle forms, and pile jackets.  It was fun to take on a new market and prove to perspective customers we can go outside of our construction products realm.  I think this will open us up to many new product lines,” said Jon Alloway, MFG CP Business Manager.
