2010, Sussex IM Purchase: Due to the ‘08-’09 recession, Rexam was in the process of shutting down/consolidating plants. 3 employees from the management team: Phil Salzman, Keith Everson, and Dave Guagliardo had the opportunity to buy back the business and ended up saving approximately 220 jobs. The company was returned to its core values and Sussex IM (Injection Molding) Inc. was formed in 2010.
As a result, a long run of annual double-digit growth continues to this very day. Another plant expansion took place, this one for 12,000 square feet. Further, Sussex IM South – our Advanced Manufacturing Facility- is planned at 86,000 square feet to further customer satisfaction for increased capacity and streamlined pellet to pallet work-flow schemes.
