Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCMKTS:ITKG) informed that Chang Rim Eng Inc., its Asian molding partner completed testing and development activities of a motor casing for an Asian automotive client. Won-Hyun Kwon, the President of Chang Rim, stated that the changes were made to fulfill the client’s requirements late last year.
The company has to manufacture new samples and conduct additional testing to finish the validation process. Finally, the process is over, which can result in a significant order for the company.

To support the initiatives, Chang Rim is executing a manufacturing extrusion line in order to develop an extrusion process for applications under development. Doug Bathauer, the CEO of Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCMKTS:ITKG), said that apart from an extrusion line, its partner Chang Rim will also work on various resins including PVC, PC, and PET.
The management is excited with the developments as they continue to work together with Chang Rim in development of ElectriPlast. The company is a leading specialty molder located in Daegu. The prime focus is on plastic injection molded products for several industries including consumer, automotive, and industrial products.
