The specialist for high-quality films and packaging, Nordenia USA, has opened a new plant in North America and has now nearly doubled its floor space. The new Hubble Creek plant, which currently houses 95 employees, is located 16 kilometres from the Indian Creek main plant and will focus on flexible packaging for the food and pet care & garden end markets. The building, which is named after the small creek that runs behind the building, offers permanent space for 4-6 additional bag lines, says the company.
The specialist for high-quality films and packaging designed the new 17,000 m2 building, which was officially inaugurated on function, as a centre of competence for pre-made packaging. At the beginning of the year, the plant installed a new bag making machine, and new production lines and printing presses are to follow.
The entire investment volume, which includes the new machine, totals EURO 3.5 million (the building is leased). In the medium term, the expansion of capacity is expected to create more than 50 new positions. As a result, Nordenia USA Jackson now operates two plants in North America, Hubble Creek and Indian Creek, both of which are located in Missouri.
