With a state-of-the-art greenfield compounding plant and excellent logistics connections, the new manufacturing facility will significantly improve U.S. domestic supply security by offering our customers better global supply capability, mitigating risks in global supply chains, and serving our customers better in the U.S. market.

The new 66,000 sqft facility will include manufacturing, warehouse, quality control lab, office, and social facilities. The facility will be operational latest by August 2025. Investment is supported by the U.S. Government, the State of North Carolina, and Gaston County.
