In the US, blow moulding machine manufacturing will transfer from Milacron’s Afton, Ohio plant to Uniloy’s Global Headquarters in Tecumseh, Michigan, joining Uniloy’s mould manufacturing operations.

In Latin America, Uniloy will continue to serve the aftermarket needs of its customers through a technical centre in Queretaro, Mexico. The completion of the sale transaction related to Uniloy’s Mexico business is expected to take place in Q3, 2019.
