"This cleanroom investment complements existing manufacturing and extensive research and development sites at Sheboygan and will help us to achieve our objectives, essentially providing a 'one stop shop' for manufacturing, analysis and packaging. As a result, SAFC Hitech customers will benefit from high-quality products that meet or exceed specifications, feature significantly reduced quality variations and are delivered on time."
Looking ahead, Geoff Irvine, Director, Commercial Development & Marketing, SAFC Hitech, believes the Sheboygan facility can act as a blueprint for future expansion in overseas markets. "In 2007 we announced long-term plans for the expansion of our manufacturing footprint in both China and South Korea," Irvine says. "We expect to be able to use the construction and operational experiences gained from Sheboygan and apply it to future, similar developments serving other markets, thereby expanding our global presence using tried and tested methodologies."
