Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies has successfully begun production of its latest generation “two-up”, multiple-profile composite extrusion machinery at the Company’s Springdale South manufacturing facility.

AERT’s Springdale South extrusion facility houses the company’s newest and largest wood/plastic composite extrusion line, which incorporates several innovations and technologies designed to increase throughputs, improve operation efficiencies, and reduce manufacturing costs. The Springdale South facility started in May 2007 with production rates steadily increasing as the new line was calibrated for wood/plastic composite product extrusion. The new extrusion line, now fully operational, is significantly larger than AERT’s other lines and is designed to run two products simultaneously in lengths of up to 20 feet at a combined rate of up to 10,000 pounds per hour. The interchangeable extrusion die head design allows manufacturing of multiple products on the same line, without sacrificing throughput or line speed. This new line features innovative downstream process automation as well.

“We are excited about these latest technological developments, as our AERT manufacturing associates transform this new technology into commercial reality,” stated AERT C.E.O. Joe G. Brooks. “With this new facility and extrusion line running efficiently, AERT is positioned to upgrade and broaden our product offerings, generate higher sales, and reduce manufacturing costs. This is another positive step for AERT as we continue to address the needs of our growing customer base.”
