Polyethylene foam extruder Rex Performance Products is  expanding in St. Clair County, Michigan and expects to add approximately 15 new jobs while investing $3 million to increase capacity.   The expansion is projected to assist in doubling sales over the next year and a half. 

Rex has begun leasing a 140,000-square-foot facility in Port Huron, Mich., about six miles from the headquarters operation in Marysville, Mich. The Port Huron location will house a new lamination line and other converting equipment as well as warehouse space.

Rex currently is investing about $3 million to increase capacity, Tate said. In addition to the new lamination line for Port Huron, the company will install a new extrusion line in Marysville, its fourth at that factory. Rex has one lamination line in Marysville and also manages 350,000 square feet of warehouse space in the city.
