Plastics Decorating

Maldegem, Belgium-based Verstraete IML recently announced plans to open a new production site in the United States. In the coming months, the company will start preparing the construction work for a facility in Clarksville, Tennessee, together with its parent company, Constantia Flexibles.

The new site will allow Verstraete IML to get closer to its customers in the largest growth market for IML labels outside Europe. The site will begin production in the second half of 2017 and will have multiple printing presses and finishing lines. Approximately 55 jobs will be created. Verstraete IML expects to invest $20 million in its new US plant within three years.
