Tetra Pak's Packaging Material Converting Factory in Denton, Texas, is getting ready for new technology to support the growth of its business in the U.S. and Canada. The plant's expanded capabilities are made possible through a sizeable Euro 30 million investment in factory upgrades, including a new state-of-the-art laminator, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
With this investment, Tetra Pak will be able to move some production from Mexico to Denton and offer noteworthy benefits to Tetra Pak customers, including improved service, reduced lead times and other logistical efficiencies.
The new equipment incorporates the latest in laminator design, delivering additional flexibility, higher operational speed and top quality outputs.
To accommodate the larger equipment, renovations will begin soon to build out additional space at the facility. The new equipment is expected to be in full production by the end of 2018.
Tetra Pak is the world's leading food processing and packaging solutions company.
