In-Mould labels company Verstraete will, in the coming months, start preparing the construction work for the new production site in Clarksville, Tennessee (US), together with its parent company Constantia Flexibles. The new site is intended to allow Belgium-based Verstraete IML to get closer to its customers in the largest growth market for IML labels outside Europe. The site will begin production in the second half of 2017 and will have multiple printing press and finishing lines. Some 55 jobs will be created.

Verstraete IML expects to invest EUR 18 million (USD 20 million) in its new US plant within a period of three years. The two Belgium-based plants in Maldegem and Ursel will continue to operate at the same capacity levels.

Verstraete IML is part of Constantia Flexibles, one of the world's leading manufacturers of flexible packaging and labels. Mike Henry, EVP Constantia Flexibles’ Labels division: “The new site is located in Clarksville, Tennessee, where Constantia Flexibles already has a paper and pressure sensitive labels plant serving the American beverage and food market. This has many benefits. Constantia has the management, legal and technical experience we need to operate successfully and rapidly in the North American region.”
