Lindal announces $20 million U.S. investment due to growth
LINDAL Group (lindalgroup.com), a worldwide leader in aerosol packaging, announced the acquisition of 15 acres of land, which will be used to build a new, state-of-the-art, 100,000-square foot production facility in Columbus, Indiana that will further benefit customers in the fast growing U.S. market.
This expandable facility, slated for completion by the end of 2017, is a key component of LINDAL Group’s overall $20 million investment in the U.S. market, which also includes new equipment to increase capacity and expand the aerosol leader’s product portfolio.
According to Philip Brand, global marketing director, LINDAL Group, the new centrally located U.S. facility will include production, offices, laboratories and warehousing, all on the same industrial campus.
The LINDAL Group develops and manufactures valves, actuators and spray caps for aerosol products used in cosmetics, household, pharmaceuticals, food and technical industries.
“Our new Columbus campus will be the right facility, in the right place, at the right time,” Brand says. “We anticipate the need for integrated and centrally-located resources for our wide range of U.S. customers, as demand here continues to grow.”
According to the latest annual aerosol products survey from the Consumer Specialty Products Association (CSPA), aerosol product production in North America increased 1.5% from 2014 to 2015, to 4.590 billion units, a new historic high.
“Our new Columbus facility is another example of our strength as a customer-facing organization that speeds package development and delivers unsurpassed aerosol knowledge,” LINDAL’S Brand says. “It’s all part of our quest to help our customers meet their goals and anticipate tomorrow’s market needs.”
