The Scott Bader Italia office will continue to work closely with their strategically positioned Italian distributors for the distribution of their innovative composite, adhesive and functional polymer product ranges. The formation of Scott Bader Italia follows the news that the company is investing $16 million in a new production site in Mocksville, North Carolina, according to a press release.
The investment sees the acquisition of a 110,000 square feet industrial unit on a 15-acre site, which with further investment will be developed into a state-of-the-art gelcoat and structural adhesives manufacturing facility. This will be the company’s second North American manufacturing site; the new development is expected to create 27 new jobs locally, with 21 in manufacturing and the other roles shared across HR, R&D, commercial support and applications.
In keeping with Scott Bader’s 2036 vision to steer towards sustainable growth, while increasing its global footprint, environmental impact has been a key consideration throughout the North Carolina development and will remain central to the investments in its new site. Investing in people and technology to ensure both the build and ongoing operations are as efficient as possible.
“I am delighted that Scott Bader Italia has been established and I look forward to working with our key customers and distributors in the region. I will put all my knowledge, expertise and passion to turn Scott Bader Italia into a success,” Antonio Giampà, sales manager for Scott Bader Italia said in a statement.
