Shrewsbury, MA (PRWEB) June 25, 2012
TriStar Plastics, a leader in engineered plastics solutions, today announces it has opened a new, 7,000 square foot facility in Hoffman Estates, IL to enhance service to the Midwest region. The new location houses engineering, sales and distribution functions, and triples the size of the company’s previous Midwest facility.
“Our dynamic growth in the Midwest necessitated a move to a facility with a larger footprint,” said Richard Cedrone, CEO of TriStar Plastics. “This new location will allow us to supply our manufacturing partners more efficiently, and allow room for further expansion,” he states.
Located at 2155 Stonington Avenue in the Village of Hoffman Estates, the new facility is situated along Interstate 90, “The Golden Corridor” business district of metropolitan Chicago. It is one of five nationwide branches of TriStar Plastics, and will be managed by Richard Caldwell, a long-term veteran of the plastics industry.
“The Midwest is a central hub for our manufacturing partners, and we are thrilled to expand our service offerings to them while also building new relationships within the greater-Chicago business community,” Cedrone added.

The company is the exclusive US distributor of Rulon® bearing materials, and designs and fabricates CJ, Ultracomp®, and TriSteel™ bearings for a range of heavy-duty applications.
