Spear to expand Ohio facility

July 20, 2009

The realignment will create 30 new jobs while emphasizing the company’s narrow web UV capabilities.

Spear Group Holdings has announced an expansion of its Mason, OH, USA, production facility including the addition of 30 jobs. The company’s realignment includes the transfer of manufacturing capacity from its Milford, NH, USA, facility.

“We have experienced strong growth over the last several years with our global output more than doubling in the last seven years. This includes the addition of two wide web gravure facilities, doubling the output of our European capabilities and creating state-of-the-art operations in South Africa. Updating our narrow-web capabilities in Mason ensures that Spear’s customers can continue to depend on our industry leading capabilities for both their narrow and wide web requirements,” says Randy Spear, president.

Spear has named the Mason facility its “Narrow Web UV Center of Excellence,” and it will include new printing presses, production flows and cosmetic upgrades. Work is scheduled to begin in August and be completed by the end of 2009.

Spear is a global supplier of pressure sensitive labeling for the food, beverage and personal care industries since 1982 with customers in 48 countries. The company currently operates four facilities across North America – Clarksville, TN, Mason, OH, Milford, NH, and Fulton, NY, as well as operations in the United Kingdom and South Africa.
