For the Romanian market leader, the new Romanian Greiner Assistec location at Leresti is taking over the production and assembly of a radiator kit.
Handling the ABS injection molding, welding, gluing and assembling duties and underscoring its strength in the sector of custom-tailored sourcing solutions, plastics specialist Greiner Assistec has been providing full-service manufacturing since the fall of 2012 to RADOX, the leading Romanian producer of radiators.
Kremsmünster, 22 January 2013 – The Romanian company RADOX produces bathroom radiators for Germany, England, France, Poland, Romania, and Russia. Each radiator is supplied with the corresponding assembly kit made by Greiner Assistec consisting of dowels, bolts, auxiliary parts, and plastic components.
ABS exactly meets the demands
Greiner Assistec produces the plastics components from ABS (acrylnitrile butadiene styrene). This material is very stable, with very high impact resistance and surface hardness making it ideal for subsequent chromium-plating of surfaces. For some bathroom radiator lines, this method is used to improve the cosmetic appeal of the plastic components.
Injection molding, assembly, and packing from a single source
Greiner Assistec uses injection-molding technology to process ABS for RADOX. The injection-molded plastic parts for RADOX are welded and glued together. Then Greiner Assistec sets up an assembly kit comprised of dowels, bolts, screw-nuts, auxiliary parts, along with a user manual.
