Tetra Pak’s packaging material converting factory in Denton, Texas is getting ready for new technology to support the growth of its business in North America. A €30 million ($35.2m) investment in factory upgrades, including a new laminator, will ensure the facility is positioned to meet the evolving needs of the local markets with a wider range of packaging formats.

With this investment, Tetra Pak will be able to move some production from Mexico to Denton and offer benefits to its customers such as reduced lead times.

Carmen Becker, chief executive of Tetra Pak US and Canada, 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 is expected to be in full production by the end of next year.
