Three new employees and two new hose machines will help to produce the 3- through 30-inch diameter hoses. Maclan has been in the urethane and rubber applicator business for more than 25 years. It employs 65 workers who help serve the amusement, citrus, aerospace and chemical industries while the urethane division is a major supplier of Uniroyal Chemical polyurethane products.
