Young Shang Plastic Industry Co. Ltd. (Young Shang) has become one of the largest plastic bottle and jar providers in Taiwan as it has unveiled a six million USD plant expansion recently.
"It is necessary to extend our plant in terms of product quality, production capability and inventory space enhancement," said Hank Lee.
The expanded plant is about 9,000 square meters, which is five times larger than the original one. The newly expanded plastic bottle plant is fully equipped with Japanese-made 100% automatic Single Stage Blow Moulding Machines, Two Stage Blow Moulding Machineries, Injection Moulding Machines, NISSEI ASB Machines, examination labs and a giant inventory space.
In particular, with the Single Stage Blow Moulding Machine, Young Shang has not only upgraded their production capability, their self-designed and modified cavities are capable of fabricating dynamic sizes of bottles in a single step, which meets the Taiwan market's demand for small orders with diverse options of plastic bottles. In the expanded plant, Young Shang will be focusing on manufacturing plastic bottles, wide-mouth jars including PET bottles, PET food jars, PET plastic containers, HDPE plastic bottles, PVC plastic bottles, PP plastic bottles and PS plastic bottles with various sizes.
Along with the plastic container plant is expanding, Young Shang also has a plant that only manufactures PET plastic bottle injection moulds. It is a super-sized plant for mould design and making only, and it contains more than 300 unique shapes for customers to choose.
Whether you are buying apple juice or a bottle of water, you will notice that fewer glass bottles are used today. Plastic bottles are more commonly used, and many plastic jars and bottles are made of PET, PVC, HDPE, PP and PS. With 40 years of plastic container manufacturing experience, Young Shang's flexibility in making diverse plastic jars have allowed them to be the dominating force in the market in Taiwan, and also sell them internationally.
To cope with the high demand from more than 1,000 customers, Young Shang expanded their plant with more machines for production reliability, efficiency and flexibility. Each Single Stage Blow Moulding Machine is imported from Japan and costs around 400,000 USD each. The Single Stage Blow Moulding Machine is designed for suppliers who request plastic containers and bottles with high production capability and good transparency.
The Single Stage Blow Moulding Machine makes four plastic containers every 17.9 seconds, which is 20,000 a day, and at the same time with four different shapes. Every machine covers a complete production scope starting from plastic bottles for drinks to containers for cookies or sauces.
As it is named, the blow molding process begins with melting down the plastic and forming it into a preform, and the compressed air is injected into the preform to form a plastic bottle within a single-stage. It is a machine that can assist you to increase production volumes, and also build up a solid reputation as a quality plastic container manufacturer.
In Young Shang, because PET's excellent chemical barrier, PET bottle has become their major product. For every client, a material report is provided with details to ensure the quality of plastic. In general, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is commonly used for water bottles because of its excellent heat resistance, and it is also suitable for plastic containers due to its chemical resistance characteristics.
Colored plastic bottles or jars are for UV resistance purposes; PP plastic bottles are made for high heat resistance; and PE plastic bottles can be made for chemical resistance. Polypropylene (PP) is used primarily for jars and closures and provides a rigid package with excellent moisture barrier.
One advantage of PP is its endurance at high thermal levels. High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), fabricates naturally clear and flexible bottles, and is compatible with a wide collection of products including plastic containers and jars. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)'s toxic containment has discouraged users' usage and PS’s hardness makes it break easily.
Plastics are classified by the resin identification code, which contains HDPE, PET, PVC, PP, PS, etc. When a plastic bottle is made, besides visual examination for transparency and leakage, some tests require machines to perform the test results. The tests include transparency, thickness, maximum usable temperature, brittleness temperature, moisture barrier, sunlight barrier, oxygen barrier, tensile strength, flexibility and resistance to impact and heat.
Young Shang ensures all PET plastic bottles are certified and tested for local and international buyers.
Young Shang has more than 1,000 clients, which are mostly from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, The U.S., Taiwan, etc. In 2010, they started targeting the Middle East market.
