Teknek, a Scotland-based manufacturer of web cleaning equipment, has announced plans to open a new US facility in Charlotte, NC, USA, in September. The new facility will house sales and service as well as a North American fulfillment center and consumable production capacity.
Teknek equipment is employed in a variety of industries, from semi-conductors to printing, to improve yields and reduce waste by removing contamination in critical production processes.
“The US market has been very important for Teknek during the 20 years it has been supplying yield improvement technology,” says Stephen Mitchell, managing director. “The US facility will mirror our two other production and fulfillment centers, one in Hong Kong and the other in Glasgow. Once operational, the US center will enable us to provide world class service across the globe.”
Teknek has appointed David Westwood to the position of general manager, Teknek USA. He has been with the company for more than 20 years.
