US-based label manufacturer Rockline Industries is planning to open a new Innovation and Technical Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
The new facility will be situated adjacent to the manufacturer’s corporate headquarters in the region and will work on consumer wet wipe innovation, packaging and test method developments.
The facility will have a floor space of 18,000sqft featuring laboratories equipped with microbiological and analytical chemistry capabilities and pilot line converting equipment.
Rockline Industries president Randy Rudolph said the company’s immediate objective is to continue supporting customers with cutting-edge products.
"We will also be able to strengthen our technical leadership, while improving speed to market," Rudolph added.
With the new facility, the company expects to expand the existing research and development centers located in Arkansas and England.
The new facility is expected to open in by fall 2014.
