Swisstrax / American Made

State-of-the-Art Injection Molding Presses

At Swisstrax, we are constantly striving to improve our processes and provide the most innovative products to our customers. This year, we continued to innovate our process with the installation of two advanced, fully-electric injection molding presses at our production facility in Dalton, GA.

Industry Leader of Tile Solutions

From the beginning, it has been Swisstrax’s mission to become the industry leader in the design and production of advanced modular flooring solutions. We started with a company pledge to always stay on the cutting edge of technology and use only the highest-quality materials to ensure optimal product performance for our customers. After years of production, we have kept to our pledge and look to be the standard in the industry.

State-of-the-Art Injection Molding Presses

Our new fully electric injection molding presses drastically cut down on our overall production time, while maintaining the integrity and reliability of Swisstrax tile solutions that our customers have grown to expect.

While improving our production process is very important to our company, we also want to make sure that we are improving our manufacturing capabilities in an environmentally responsible way.

Industry-Leading Processes

Challenge

Swisstrax utilizes an industry-leading process whereby each modular flooring solution checked for quality, flatness and color consistency prior to shipment. The process is primarily used to simplify installation and ensure quality, but it has also helped the Swisstrax team identify any small imperfections or slight fluctuations in color. While these issues could be addressed prior to shipment, doing so required additional assembly time to replace tiles.
