Lindal invests $3.5+ million in Mexican facility
Lindal Group, a leading aerosol packaging solutions provider, has positioned itself for future market growth in Mexico.
The first initiative involves Lindal de Mexico, now solely owned by the Lindal Group, after the company bought out the 49 per cent held by the previous ownership.
The company has also invested more than $3.5 million to support a new actuator project for a large multinational’s leading brand of antiperspirants and deodorants, in both regular and compressed formulas. The high annual volume actuator project involves multiple Mexican production cells, which will supply both the home market and the rest of North America. Production started this year and a second phase of production capacity expansion for 2015 has been initiated.
Mexico is one of the biggest markets for personal care products in Latin America. Philip Brand, global marketing director at Lindal Group, said: “The quest for product differentiation continues to drive innovation, and our aerosol solutions help customers achieve distinction and enhance perceived value in a highly competitive retail environment, in Mexico and throughout the hemisphere.
“Our strategy is to align with customers to enhance supply chain efficiency. Why transport actuators all the way from China, when we can be right here in our customers’ back yards?” he said.
Brand stated that Lindal Group will continue to support its Mexico-based production, in anticipation of further demand from multinationals and local customers selling domestically, as well as for export to the US and throughout the Americas.
