Dexter Automotive.

Dexter Automotive started up a $14 million expansion project at its Prospect Avenue plant in Kansas City, MO, and expects it to be fully operational by February 1992. The expansion results from Dexter's acquisition of Moore Plastics, Cleveland, OH. Plant capacity increases by 125% with the addition of 41,000 square feet which will house extensive compounding, extrusion and die-cutting equipment for the manufacture of acoustical materials used to improve the quality of an automobile through the reduction of noise. An 80,000 square foot distribution center has been leased for receiving, shipping and customer service activities. Sales, R&D and technical service will be positioned in a new automotive applications development center under construction in Auburn Hills, MI, which is owned by D&S Plastics, a joint venture between Dexter and Solvay & Cie.
