IPEX is investing in a new moulding plant the company says will be one of the most advanced plastics manufacturing facilities in the industry.

The 200,000-sq.-ft. facility will be built in IPEX’s headquarters of Pineville, NC, and will include industry 4.0 features such as artificial intelligence and flexible automation capabilities to significantly increase the company’s production capacity.

Construction is expected to finish in late 2022, with operations scheduled to start in early 2023. This is IPEX’s fourth recent expansion, following the opening of new distribution centres in Winnipeg, Dartmouth, NS and Garland, TX.

IPEX, an Aliaxis Company, produces thermoplastic piping systems and fittings for plumbing, electrical, industrial, and municipal applications.
