SussexIM (Sussex, WI) announced a more than one million dollar investment to enable the company to build upon the double-digit growth rate it has posted over the last five years. The major expansion includes not only the square footage of the facility but also inline filling capability and the addition of personnel. Keith Everson, President, said the company increased its footprint by 12,000 square feet to 127,000 square feet, and enlarged its workforce by 12%.
“Our annual growth rate has averaged 11% over the last five years,” said Everson, “and it is an exciting example of how U.S. production know-how can compete globally, against offshore providers, by delivering superior quality, innovation and return on investment.”
In addition to the increase in production, the company’s investment has also furthered its range of capabilities in inline filling, including micro-dosing, check-weighing and overwrapping. “As a result, SussexIM is a more appealing, U.S.-based strategic partner for key brand owners than ever before,” Everson commented. “We are perfectly positioned for further growth.”
