LATHAM, N.Y.—Protective Industrial Products, Inc. (PIP) recently broke ground on a multimillion- dollar expansion of its PRI Industries, Inc. (PRI) manufacturing facility in Chaska, Minnesota.
The addition will double the amount of manufacturing space and allow the installation of new equipment that has been acquired during the past year. According to a release from the company, this expansion will allow the PRI facility to support demand for domestically produced, high performance protective products.
Started in 1981 by Phil Robins, and today under the leadership of his son, Steven, PRI has expanded to manufacture a comprehensive line of high performance knit gloves and sleeves that protect workers in the automotive, aerospace, construction, food processing, and metal fabrication industries, according to company representatives. These state-of-the-art products are manufactured with materials such as DuPont Kevlar® and DSM Dyneema®, as well as proprietary blends, using materials like stainless steel and carbon fibers.
With the increase in production, PIP expects to add at least 10 new positions at the PRI plant during the next few years.
“We are delighted to be adding more American manufacturing jobs to meet the safety demands of the American worker,” PRI President Steven Robins said in the press release.
The expansion and new capacities are targeted to be operational by the end of the year. Protective Industrial Products, Inc. owns three domestic manufacturing facilities that make personal protective products in the United States.
