Huntersville, NC, August 29, 2017- Daumar Corporation, the leading packaging solutions provider to the fresh produce industry, announced their plans today to build their first U.S. flexographic printing facility in The Park – Huntersville. Daumar will invest $21,000,000 during the first construction phase to build a 120,000 square-foot facility in Huntersville. During the first phase, Daumar plans to create 40 new jobs. The company specializes in blown film extrusion and knitted netting used in produce packaging across the country.
“We are excited about establishing our first U.S. flexographic printing facility in Huntersville,” said Luis Mendoza, Daumar. “We chose Huntersville for many reasons: The Park – Huntersville is world-class business park, we are confident in the available workforce, and we can’t wait to be apart of such a great community.”
“I am pleased to welcome Daumar Corporation to our community,” said Mayor John Aneralla, Town of Huntersville. “Huntersville, and the Lake Norman region, continues to attract investment and job creation from foreign markets. I am proud that Huntersville continues to stand out in the international arena as a destination for companies seeking new opportunities.”
“International advanced manufacturers continue to be a target industry for our local economy, and we are honored to have companies like Daumar make the decision to invest in our community,” said Ryan McDaniels, Executive Director of Lake Norman Economic Development. “Daumar’s innovative flexographic printing technology will be an exciting addition to our region.”
Other key partners in the project include Mecklenburg County, the Town of Huntersville, and the Charlotte Chamber.
