Premix history in the US

The Apple Creek project kicked off in May 2022. We opened a temporary office in Belmont, NC in 2022, and have been building both the plant and the organization since then.  The new manufacturing plant and office are advancing in steps. The office moved from Belmont in March 2024, the warehouse offering local storage for our customers will be ready by Q4 2024, and the first customer deliveries manufactured in Apple Creek are planned to take place in Q1 2025.

Building the US business based on appreciation, courage, and passion

Premix is truly a family company, with over four decades of history and now being run by the second generation. The Premix USA company culture is based on these values, which are truly reflected in our daily work guiding our business and ways of working.

Family-owned Finland-based Premix Group is a market leader and a global forerunner in electrically conductive plastics. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Premix ensured the rapid growth of global PCR testing through fast production scale-up and 100% supply accuracy of electrically conductive plastic, the key raw material of robotic automation pipette tips.​

The US Department of Defense, working with the Department of Health and Human Services, awarded in May 2022 a $79.9 million contract to Premix, Inc. to establish a plastic compound manufacturing plant in North Carolina.​ The facility will primarily produce plastic materials for diagnostic testing and help secure critical diagnostic supplies in the United States, and better serve Premix’s global customers.​
