Empire Precision Plastics has been selected for the 2017 Best of Rochester Award for Precision Injection & Optics Molding by the Rochester Award Program. It is the sixth consecutive year that Empire has earned this honor, which qualifies us for the Rochester Business Hall of Fame.
Each year, the Rochester Award Program identifies companies that have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. The winners enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community and make Rochester a great place to live and work.
The past year was one of considerable growth for Empire Precision:
- We completed a 27,000-square-foot expansion that included a new technology center for collaborative R&D, additional cleanrooms and automation systems to streamline medical and optics molding and assembly, and increased warehouse space to support inventory management.
- In February 2016, Empire acquired passive infrared lens equipment from Orafol Display Optics, expanding our in-house optics capabilities.
- In December 2016, Empire acquired manufacturing assets from Advanced Mold & Tooling, which allowed us to increase the existing capacity to build custom injection molds, and begin offering tooling-only services.
“Empire strives to continually improve injection molding and assembly services for our medical device, industrial and firearms customers in the Rochester area and beyond,” Empire Precision President Neal Elli said. “We’re honored to be recognized by Rochester Award program for the sixth year in a row, and we look forward to what’s ahead.”
