Lindal Group (Hamburg, Germany), a global manufacturer of aerosol packaging, announced the acquisition of 15 acres of land for the construction of a new 100,000-square-foot facility in Columbus, IN. The new facility will be home to manufacturing, R&D, offices and warehousing on a single campus that will benefit customers in the fast-growing U.S. market, said Lindal. The company develops and manufactures valves, actuators and spray caps for aerosol products used in cosmetics, household goods, pharmaceuticals, food products and technical industries.

This expandable facility, slated for completion by the end of 2017, is a key component of Lindal’s overall $20 million investment in the U.S. market, which also includes new equipment to increase capacity and expand the company’s product portfolio. Philip Brand, Global Marketing Director, commented, “Our new Columbus campus will be the right facility, in the right place, at the right time. We anticipate the need for integrated and centrally-located resources for our wide range of U.S. customers, as demand here continues to grow.” 

According to the latest annual aerosol products survey from the Consumer Specialty Products Association (CSPA), aerosol product production in North America increased 1.5% from 2014 to 2015, to 4.590 billion units, a new historic high. Grand View Research projects that the global aerosol market will reach $84.04 billion by 2024, and grow at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2016 to 2024. The independent research firm states that North America is the world’s second largest market for aerosol products, with 30.2% of global revenue.   

“Our new Columbus facility is another example of our strength as a customer-facing organization that speeds package development and delivers unsurpassed aerosol knowledge,” said Brand.  “It’s all part of our quest to help our customers meet their goals and anticipate tomorrow’s market needs.”

The Peterson Company LLC of Indianapolis, Indiana, has been chosen to build this advanced aerosol production facility.

The Lindal Group has more than 50 years of experience with innovative dispensing solutions and is represented by subsidiaries and licensees in more than 15 countries throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas.
