Reynolds Polymer Technology plans to open its Grand Junction manufacturing facility to the public for an event scheduled for Oct. 17.
A community open house is set for 3:30 to 7 p.m. at the facility, located at 607 Hollinsgworth St. The event will offer tours as well as an informal, backyard party atmosphere.
Reynolds Polymer manufactures acrylic and polymer products, including windows used in aquariums and swimming pools as well as architectural features and scientific applications. The company supplies half the windows used in major aquariums around the world.
“Everyone is welcome to get a sneak peek into the process of a local product that the entire community should be proud to say it’s made in Grand Junction,” said Bri Edry, marketing and sales director for Reynolds Polymer. “This open house is just the first step to build on Reynold’s local awareness and to introduce our business to potential job seekers.”
The company has 18 job openings with more planned, Edry said. The executive team will be at the open house to answer questions and conduct interviews.
Over the past 30 years, Reynolds Polymer has been involved in a total of 1,900 projects in 57 countries. That includes the AquaDom in a Berlin hotel complex that at more than 50-feet tall and 36 feet in diameter is the largest cylindrical aquarium in the world.
