Oracal announced a significant expansion will begin this summer at their Black Creek headquarters.
The company, which is the U.S.-based partner of Orafol International, said their U.S. operations expansion will include the addition of a new warehouse facility and an additional adhesive coating line, according to a press release from the Bryan County Development Authority Friday.
“We are extremely pleased about this information and look forward to more jobs coming to Bryan County as a result of this expansion,” DA Executive Director Jean Bacon said.
There is not yet an indication of how many additional jobs the expansion will bring to the county.
According to Holger Loclair, CEO of Oracal, construction for the $20 million expansion project will begin this month, with completion expected by early 2009. The additional warehouse facility will add approximately 92,000 square-feet of warehouse space to the company’s existing 260,000 square-foot manufacturing and distribution facility in the Interstate Center industrial park.
“We’re extremely encouraged with the growth we’ve experienced since dedicating the first phase of our U.S. manufacturing facility in 2006,” Loclair said in the release. “Our latest expansion plans reflect the ongoing confidence our distributors and end-users have shown in our products, as well as our own expectations for continued growth in all of our markets.”
