Preferred Compounding relaunches Glo-Mold as GloMoldPlus.

COPLEY, OHIO – Last month Preferred Compounding (“Preferred”) acquired the proprietary mold cleaning products sold under the trade name Glo-Mold as part of its integration of Valley Rubber Mixing. To highlight recent product improvements and its positioning under the Preferred umbrella, the line of mold cleaning products is being reintroduced as GloMoldPlus. Specifically, GloMoldPlus has 4 times the shelf life of prior products, has dramatically reduced odor compared with prior products, and is now backed by the quality, service and reliability of Preferred.

“GloMoldPlus represents a unique opportunity for Preferred to bring an additional value to its rubber molding and extruding customers. Fabrication operations which embrace a mold management disciple with GloMoldPlus at its center should see significant reductions in scrap and downtime.” said Ken Bloom, Preferred president and CEO. “The new branding of GloMoldPlus, the change of emphasis from ‘mold cleaning’ to comprehensive ‘mold management’, and access to the sales and technical network of Preferred bring an exciting new future for the GloMoldPlus family of compounds” said Eric Conroy, Account Manager – GloMoldPlus.
