FITCHBURG, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 8, 2006--New England's largest plastic box manufacturer, Alpha Rho Inc., has increased its stock mold inventory to more than 30 through the acquisition of molds developed by M & L Plastics of Easthampton, Mass. The new molds include proprietary shapes for five different box types - hinged, compartment, friction-fit, round and heart-shaped. Many are one-of-a-kind, resulting from custom development.
Alpha Rho's rigid polystyrene containers are used for crafts, jewelry, gifts, candies, hardware, sporting goods, industrial applications and more. The newly acquired molds include such unusual shapes as beveled corners and octagons - shapes that would stand out on retailers' shelves.
