SIRANE is expanding to the United States of America – with the intention to open manufacturing Stateside before the end of the year.
We’re currently finalising plans to operate a new packaging production site out of Texas – with a site in the city of Grand Prairie on the cards.
The site in the Lone Star State will allow us to manufacture flexible packaging solutions such as our plastic-free Earthpouch, and also give us a foot-hold in the US from where we can look to sell other packaging solutions.
Grand Prairie is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth conurbation.
Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “This has been months in the planning, and we hope to be fully operational in the United States this year.
“We’re looking at sites in the Grand Prairie area, and as soon as we have decided on a location, we hope to be able to move pretty fast.
“This will be a significant move – we have been aiming to manufacture in the US for a number of years and are now in a position to make it happen.”
The move will be the second significant expansion by Sirane in recent months, with our new site in the Czech Republic about to become operational.
