Novamelt-Jowat completes factory expansion

March 7, 2011

The investment in the North Carolina facility doubles the size of the company’s manufacturing and storage space.

Adhesives manufacturer Novamelt-Jowat has announced the completion of its factory expansion in Archdale, NC, USA. Both owners of Novamelt Gmbh, Harold Braun and Pieter Mol, as well as senior management from Jowat Corporation, attended the building dedication and grand opening ceremony.

“This investment underscores Novamelt’s dedication to our customers in North America and Latin America,” said Braun. “This expansion is just the next step in our global growth strategy and in our efforts to support our growing customer base worldwide, and to secure reliable sources of raw material supply for this growth.”

The expansion has doubled the size of the manufacturing and storage facility. The original facility had been operating at full capacity since early 2006.

Novamelt-Jowat manufactures adhesives for label, tape, medical, hygiene, and industrial products manufacturing, including hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives and UV curable hot melt adhesives. The company is a joint venture between Novamelt Germany and Jowat Corporation.
