Model X550P high speed packaging machine 

                 JUST PURCHASED!!!

Due to a corporate plant consolidation, we have just purchased 
a complete plastics molding facility that has 19 injection molders,
3 ^PET blow molders, and related accessories. All the machinery and
equipment has been relocated to our 25,000 square foot facility in
Hemmingway, South Carolina.

Most of the machinery is in very good condition, has been maintained
very well, and many of the machines have been rebuilt, remanufactured,
and-or have upgraded controls. Unfortunately, due to the time constraints
and the size of this purchase, we do not have much detailed information
to provide on the individual machines. However, inspection of the machinery
can be arranged at any time. All the machinery and accessories have been
significantly discounted to move them quickly, and are being offered
subject to prior sale.

A summary of all 22 injection and blow molders purchased at this plant
can be seen on this site at:
