Tetra Pak has announced €30m investment to expand its packaging material converting factory in Texas to facilitate its business growth in the US and Canada.

The investment will be used for modernization in the factory located in Denton including the addition of a new laminator.

According to the Switzerland-based Tetra Pak, the state-of-the-art laminator will help its Denton facility to produce broader variety of packaging formats to cater to the changing needs of the American and Canadian markets.

Tetra Pak US and Canada president and CEO Carmen Becker said: “Tetra Pak is pleased to make these upgrades, which will position our Denton factory as one of the most advanced in our global operations.

“This new technology will allow us to produce an expanded portfolio of packages out of this facility and better serve our customers.”

The new equipment integrates the latest laminator design and is likely to result in more flexibility, higher operational speed and improve the quality of outputs.

Tetra Pak expects to carry out renovations to create more space at the Denton converting plant to house the larger equipment. The new equipment is slated to commence full production by 2018 end.

The packaging solutions company says that following the investment, its Denton facility will have additional production moved from Mexico. It is expected to help customers with enhanced service, lesser lead times and other logistical efficiencies.

Operations at the Denton converting facility involve printing of paperboard and conversion of layers of base materials into aseptic packaging material rolls.

As part of the process, the new laminator will be used to apply polyethylene layers to laminate together the printed material and aluminum.
