Since pooling their talents in January, Wisconsin Thermoset Molding Inc. and Rose Polymer Composites LLC have taken aggressive steps that include acquisition of Milwaukee-based AcroReels in April, ISO 9001 certification and the roll out of a new corporate name Cornerstone Composites Inc. The custom composite molders along with AcroReel will operate under the umbrella brand Cornerstone Composites to provide original equipment manufacturers with tailored, high performance composite material engineered to replace metal and thermoplastic parts.
Under Cornerstone Composites the two companies have enhanced their capability to tailor components from concept, prototyping and testing to tooling and production methods. Equipment upgrades include 32 advanced compression, transfer and injection molding presses supported by extruders, preheaters and preformers. Four shifts operate between the two manufacturing locations which can produce parts from ¼-in. to 30 in. wide.
WTM and Rose Polymer will continue to maintain their separate locations with WTM acting as the central contact for customers for both locations as well as AcroReel.
