Company Growth


Some Highlights Along the Way


ENTEK grew steadily over the years with numerous highlights along the way. Some of these included:


• NPE shows: After exhibiting at its first NPE show in 1997 with a small 10’ booth, ENTEK has been a major exhibitor at every NPE since. In 2018, ENTEK had a 40’ x 50’ island booth at NPE featuring QC3


33mm and HR3


73mm machines, interactive screw design layout programs, and live 5-minute screw change demonstrations


• Markets: In its early years, ENTEK began working with leading color compounders who embraced our new extruder design. We offered then and still offer today extruders with the electrical, cooling, heating, and lubrication components onboard within Stainless Steel cabinets; easily sourced electrical and mechanical components; and the willingness to provide custom solutions to suit our customer’s unique needs. Today, ENTEK is the leading twin-screw supplier to this market and has become a leading supplier in other markets including wood-plastic extrusion, packaging, bioresins, and specialty materials.


Today . . .


After 20 years in business, ENTEK has several hundred twin-screw extruders in operation in 14 countries – from the US, Canada and Mexico to Europe, Asia and Australia.


“We pride ourselves on the fact that many of our customers have continued to purchase


from us over the years,” said Linda Campbell, ENTEK’s Director of Sales. “We’re also proud that five members of our sales team have over 20 years with ENTEK.”


From that first machine sale in 1998, ENTEK now manufactures eight sizes of twin-screw extruders ranging from 27mm to 133mm in size. “We have a machine for virtually any materials compounding application, from small machines for lab environments to machines for ultra-high masterbatch production,” said Linda Campbell.


• QC3


: After several years of research and development, ENTEK introduced its new line of QC3 QC3


twin-screw extruders in 2015. stands for Quick Change, Quick Clean and Quality Control.


Virtually every aspect of the machine was examined and redesigned, if necessary, to improve on all of these key parameters. The machines feature the ability to change screws in 5 minutes or less – a function that takes hours on competitors’ machines.


ENTEK thanks its many loyal customers who have worked with the company over the years and welcomes new prospects who would like to learn more about the company’s twin-screw extruders and wear parts. Contact ENTEK any time to speak with one of our expert staff, or even better, plan a visit to Oregon to tour ENTEK’s facilities, meet our people and run material trials in our state-of-the-art Pilot Plant. “We’re proud that we’ve been in the twin-screw extruder business for 20 years, but we’re even more enthusiastic about our future,” said Kirk Hanawalt.


Continued Growth


The sounds of progress continue to be heard outside at ENTEK’s headquarters in Lebanon, Oregon. We are in the midst of another expansion of our ENTEK Extruders facility!


Our shop area is being increased with a new 30,000 ft2 addition. The new area will be used for fabrication, assembly, testing and shipping.


“As our business continues to grow, we needed to expand our shop area,” said John Burke, ENTEK’s Director of Manufacturing. “We are applying lean principles and will be rearranging the facility flow through the existing and new building to optimize efficiency and production.”
