RTP Company wants to reopen Dayton plant
September 14, 2017
RTP Company, a global manufacturer of thermoplastic molding compounds, is planning to reopen its mostly-shuddered facility in Dayton.
Carson City-based Shaheen Beauchamp Builders is the general contractor on the project, which includes interior tenant improvements, updated restroom facilities, updated mechanical and electrical systems, new energy efficient lighting; and recirculating process water chillers used during manufacturing.
Greg Whitten, plant manager for the RTP Company's Dayton facility, said the company is rapidly expanding and estimates the Dayton plant will initially look to hire 25 employees.
"We are a totally diversified, privately owned company with 19 manufacturing facilities world-wide," he said. "We manufacture thermoplastic molding compounds used in applications including military/aerospace, electronics, automotive parts, appliances, medical, oil and gas drilling, and most likely anything else you can think of. If it uses thermoplastics, we can tailor a compound to meet the requirements of the application."
Appromately 50 local workers have been deployed on the project through various sub-contractors' companies.
