New update on our US facility
A while ago we announced the start-up of our US production facility. Are you wondering where we are now? Watch our video and discover the progress we made.
At the end of 2016 we announced that Verstraete IML was going to start up a new facility in the US. Because of the acquisition by Multi-Color Corporation, the location of the new plant was revised. We decided that the most ideal location for our start-up would be close to the MCC headquarters in Batavia, Ohio.
To support our future growth in the American market we decided to completely renovate a large existing building, giving us maximum flexibility for the future. Since then, a lot of things have happened:
- We placed new lighting, flooring, painting, electricity, compressed air and humidity control
- We are currently installing our first printing press.
- Our rotary die cutting and plate making machines will arrive next week.
- All will be finished by mid-June
A team of 24 employees has been intensively trained in the US as well as in Belgium. Each one of them was indispensable to achieve our goals and they are very excited about starting this opportunity in the US!
We are looking forward to welcoming you in our new plant and producing your labels in the US!
