The Lindal Group, a German-based aerosol packaging provider, is seeing plenty of opportunity in Mexico. As a result, the company has positioned itself for future market growth in Mexico - and shortened supply chains for customers in Mexico that serve both the home and export markets.
The first initiative involves Lindal de Mexico, now solely owned by the Lindal Group, after the company bought out the 49 percent held by the previous ownership. Next, the company invested more than $3.5 million to support a new actuator project for a large multinational's leading brand of antiperspirants and deodorants, in both regular and compressed formulas. The high annual volume actuator project involves multiple Mexican production cells, which will supply both the home market and the rest of North America. Production started this year and a second phase of production capacity expansion for 2015 has been initiated.
In addition, the company started Mexican valve production, further shortening supply chains and increasing efficiencies for Lindal customers.
