Tetra Pak, Vernon Hills, Ill., invested $30 million on its packaging material converting factory in Denton, Texas, to include a new state-of-the-art laminator to meet a wider range of packaging formats.

“Tetra Pak is pleased to make these upgrades, which will position our Denton factory as one of the most advanced in our global operations,” says Carmen Becker, president and CEO of Tetra Pak U.S. and Canada. “This new technology will allow us to produce an expanded portfolio of packages out of this facility and better serve our customers.”

With this investment, Tetra Pak will be able to move some production from Mexico to Denton and offer improved service, reduced lead times and other logistical efficiencies.

To accommodate the larger equipment, renovations will begin soon to build out additional space at the facility. The new equipment is expected to be in full production by the end of 2018.
