Jim Vander Kolk, President, Royal Technologies Corporation, announced that after much consideration between Mission and other sites, the company has chosen to expand its operations in Mission, Texas. Royal Technologies Corporation has acquired 12 acres in the Mission Expressway Business Park where it will construct a Class A, 325,000 square foot manufacturing facility and create at least 100 jobs.
In April 2012, Mission EDC played a role in assuring that the newly formed alliance between Hi-Tech Plastics and Royal Technologies had a smooth transition. Hi-Tech Plastics, a custom molder in Mission, Texas, and Royal Technologies, an advanced engineering and manufacturing company serving industries as diverse as automotive, furniture, and consumer products in Hudsonville, MI, formed this alliance to better serve their customers in this region. The alliance resulted in a significant capital investment and an increase of approximately 30 jobs. This alliance proved to be a great match and in early December 2012, Royal Technologies acquired Hi-Tech plastics with the intention of increasing their facility, employment, and production in Mission, Texas.
Royal Technologies Corporation, staying true to their word, plans to break ground later this month and expects to have the facility complete by early 2014. “The Mission EDC team has been working with Royal Technologies for the past several months and we are excited to see their hard work has paid off” stated David Deanda, MEDC/MEDA Chair. “The creation of 100 jobs is a substantial number of new jobs for a city like Mission; these are great jobs that will support families.”
“Royal Technologies Corporation’s expansion into Mission is a testament to the prosperous business climate that this region offers,” Mayor Norberto “Beto” Salinas said. “I am thrilled about the expansion, and I am fully supportive of Royal Technologies’ decision to bring additional jobs and added revenue to our community.”
Royal Technologies has about 900 employees throughout the U.S, not including the 85 jobs that were included in the acquisition of Hi-Tech Plastics or the 100 new jobs that will be created later this year.
“This project is an indication of Mission’s business-friendly climate and proof that Governor Perry’s message of Texas being open for business continues to remain strong” stated Alex Meade, CEO, Mission EDC.
