AOC Installs New Mixer at Indiana Manufacturing Plant

AOC has recently added a new 6,000-gallon mixer at the manufacturing plant in Valparaiso, Indiana, US, which greatly expands the plant’s capacity to service open mould markets, such as tub/shower and cured-in-place pipes.  

According to AOC, the installation allows it to meet the demand of more customers in more places, whilst utilising the mixer’s proprietary process control and data collection system. Detailed data from every stage of every process is recorded, analysed and stored to continuously improve quality and consistency from batch to batch.  

“This investment helps AOC continue meeting our customers’ needs with the products they trust,” said Mike Diehl, AOC’s Business Manager. “And we can now serve them with more responsiveness, flexibility and efficiency.”
