To mold or not to mold, that's not even a question for the folks at MXL Industries. The company has become an injection molding specialist that manufactures a variety of goods, including optical plastic products such as motorcycle helmet flip shields and visors. MXL Industries makes polycarbonate parts requiring adherence to strict optical quality specifications. It also provides abrasion and fog resistant plastic coating services, and injection molding for custom plastic products. President Jim Eberle and a group of senior managers bought majority control of MXL Industries in 2008; National Patent Development retains a 20% interest.
