Cook Polymer Technology, a raw materials manufacturer and part of Cook Group, will expand its operations by opening a new plant in Canton, IL. The new plant, called Cook Polymer Technology – Canton, will be a specialized manufacturing facility producing polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) tubing, which is widely used by Cook Medical’s business units. When fully operational, the plant will employ approximately 30 people. The company anticipates full production functionality in about two years.
“Cook is excited about building this new plant in the city of Canton,” said David Lessard, vice president and general manager of Cook Polymer Technology. “We will continue Cook’s commitment of creating jobs and economic development in the area, and are grateful to the state of Illinois, Mayor Meade, and the economic development team in Canton for their support and cooperation in these projects.”
