Anderson Die & Manufacturing has installed a new state-of- the-art AEC cooling tower system to more efficiently cool hydraulic fluid used in the company’s Husky and HPM plastic injection molding machines. This project was partially funded by The Energy Trust of Oregon.
The new cooling tower system was built for Anderson’s by AEC of New Berlin, Ohio and installed by Portland Mechanical Contractors, MP Plumbing, Christiansen Electric, and KV Industries. Jim Shaw of Shaw and Christler Equipment Technologies acted as the local representative for AEC on this project and in insuring the cooling tower project fully met Energy Trust of Oregon guidelines.
This is a major facilities upgrade for Anderson that will markedly improve the company’s manufacturing productivity in the warmer summer months and will, also, save the company thousands of dollars each month by reducing electrical usage and energy costs.
Anderson Die & Manufacturing operating as Anderson Pots was founded in Portland, OR in 1954 by George Anderson. The company has been an innovator in reusable plastic Injection molded nursery pots and allied products for the nursery industry. Additional information is available at www.andersonpots.com.
