KILLBUCK, Ohio (May 24)—Rubber extruder Rice-Chadwick Rubber Co. is investing about $2 million to purchase and outfit a 43,000-sq.-ft. facility and thus add much-needed production capacity. The new Loudonville, Ohio, plant will house two continuous salt-bath cure lines—one to be added this fall and another in 2002—to increase the company's extrusion capacity by 35 percent. The facility will complement the company's 100,000-sq.-ft. factory located 17 miles away in Killbuck, where Rice-Chadwick is headquartered. In the next five to 10 years, Rice-Chadwick will add eight curing lines and additional equipment to more than double the firm's production capacity, all at an investment of more than $5 million.
