Consumables maker ACTEGA to open new large-scale NC production facility to support future growth

ACTEGA plans to open a new 238,000-sq-ft facility in Kings Mountain, NC. The project is being supported by the State of North Carolina, providing funding to establish a new state-of-the-art, production facility. With the goal of bringing together four existing premises located in North Carolina and Indiana, the premise is expected to create additional jobs once operational and new opportunities for growth across the ACTEGA business lines.

ACTEGA’s facility will occupy twice the space of ACTEGA’s four locations in North America combined. The relocation is set to take place in Q2 2024 and once complete, all ink-technology development will be under one roof, creating a new level of synergy for R&D, technical service, and quality control. This move demonstrates ACTEGA’s commitment to the market, investing in cutting-edge technology and providing exceptional customer service. Customers will also benefit from a dedicated Experience Centre, designed for both flexographic printing presses and rod coaters.

With its expansive size, the new building will be a platform for ACTEGA to expand its Flexible Packaging, Metal Packaging, and Paper and Board business line production and operations. The state-of-the-art pigment dispersions process, along with other advanced technologies used in the facility, ensures that the company stays ahead of the game in producing high-quality products. The premises will also include local production of metal-decorating inks, allowing ACTEGA to enter the North American metal-packaging market with ease. Additionally, ACTEGA will continue to prioritize customer safety in this new facility with the production of indirect food contact printing inks and direct food contact barrier coatings in compliance with good manufacturing practices.

The State of North Carolina has granted funding for the new site at $94,000. This investment will contribute towards customized training programs at Cleveland Community College and Gardner Webb University that will nurture current and future employees within the local community.
