Toronto-based CCL Industries Inc. is investing $30 million to expand one of its CCL Label manufacturing plants, in Clinton, S.C.
The South Carolina Department of Commerce announced the project Dec. 23. CCL bought the Clinton plant in 2013 as part of its $500 million acquisition of two packaging units from Avery Dennison Corp.
The $30 million investment, which will be spread over the next five years, includes adding 36,000 square feet of space to an existing facility and 98 new jobs. The company said most of the expansion will be completed in 2015.
The Clinton site makes highly engineered component products and printing for the electronics, automotive, consumer battery and beverage markets.
Al Green, CCL's vice president of technology development, said in a news release: “This project is a result of our growing global businesses in a number of important expanding markets.”
Earlier this month CCL announced that it is buying German label maker Druckerei Nilles GmbH in a $17.3 million deal. Druckerei Nilles specializes in wine labels, and is based in Trittenheim, in Germany's Moselle wine region.
CCL, which has corporate offices in Toronto and Framingham, Mass., calls itself the world's largest converter of pressure sensitive and extruded film materials. The company has 10,300 workers at 98 production sites in 28 countries.
