Production in own factory from summer 2022
Polykemi’s goal has always been to start its own production also in the USA and in April 2021 that milestone was reached. Our new factory in Gastonia, outside Charlotte in North Carolina, lays the foundation for further growth in the market. The factory, with an area of just over 5,000 square meters, is already prepared for expansion up to 10,000 square meters. It will initially include two production lines with associated laboratory and warehouse facilities. Production is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2022.
The factory is geographically close to many of our current customers, providing a clearer presence that saves time, costs and the environment. It also provides an even stronger customer relationship.
