Roth Industries is expanding its capacity at its location in Watertown, New York, with a new large-scale blow moulding system and a 2,500 square metre factory expansion with modern infrastructure.

Roth USA is expanding and increasing the capacity of its large blow moulding systems to satisfy increasing demand. Roth has five production sites worldwide where plastic products are produced using blow moulding.

In addition to the two German production sites in Dautphetal-Buchenau and Bischofswerda, there is another in Tudela, Spain, as well as two in the USA. These are located in Watertown and Syracuse. According to Roth Industries, the company has the world's largest blow moulders, with which it manufactures containers with up to 10,000 litres capacity. With its storage systems for water and fuels, the Hessian family business is one of the world leaders in this market segment.

Roth has invested approximately six million euros in the plant expansion. Construction work is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year, and the new plant will go into operation in the summer of 2017. Fifteen new jobs will be created at the site in Watertown in the medium term. Roth USA currently has about 50 employees. In Watertown, Roth Industries manufactures blow moulded double-wall tanks for domestic and commercial use, as well as traffic management systems made of plastic. In addition, the company produces heating circuit distributors as well as components for panel heating and cooling systems. A hundred kilometres away in Syracuse, Roth USA produces containers for water and wastewater treatment as well as blow moulded kayaks. The company supplies the markets in North America and Canada from the two sites. Roth has had its own subsidiaries in the USA since 1997. The company in Syracuse has belonged to the family since 2007. Roth Hydraulics NA has also been based there since January 2016. The company represents the hydraulics division of Roth Industries. It manufactures and markets piston and diaphragm accumulators that are produced in Germany.
