Universal Dynamics plans to
more than double its production over
the next three years by continuing to
be a leader in the design, manufacturing and installation of auxiliary products for the plastics processing industry. The company plans to occupy its
new North American headquarters in
Fredericksburg, Va., by the end of this
year and next year begin to roll out
new product lines.
"We design and manufacture sus60

tainable systems that have enough
robustness and versatility that they
can be the system in place now and a
generation after installation," President and CEO Bill Goldfarb says.
"One of the most rewarding things
for myself is that I can go to a system
that we designed and installed 20
years ago and it's still running in the
same fashion it was designed to do."
In 1957, Universal Dynamics began manufacturing dehumidifying

equipment for the U.S. government
to preserve valuable, vital material
at missile sites, warehouses and on
mothballed ships. In the 1960s, the
company moved to the Woodbridge,
Va., facility it occupies today, building
the first large-capacity dryers needed
by the plastics industry for processing
resin material in refrigerator liners
and other large parts formed from
sheet material.
"As time and technology marched
on, there was a connection to supply
drying equipment for plastics material," Goldfarb explains. "That was
in the '60s, and at the same time the
plastics industry was growing. There
was a need for suppliers with all types
of equipment."
