New plastics manufacturer creating 17 jobs in Farmington

insight84Industrial plastics manufacturer PolySol is relocating its headquarters from Michigan where it was founded nearly two years ago to Farmington, Missouri, where it plans to create 17 jobs and make a $150,000 capital investment.

PolySol bulk manufactures a liquid plastic coating called plastisol, which is used by every major industry from military and automotive to industrial belting, agriculture, construction and more. The vinyl plastic coating offers a soft yet durable finish for products ranging from industrial conveyor belts to common items such as steering wheels, handle grips for shop tools, park benches, exercise equipment and more.

Farmington beat out 10 other communities in the site selection process where PolySol is now leasing 20,000 sq. ft. of an industrial building and has already hired six of the 17 new positions.
