Global corrosion inhibitors and protective packaging manufacturer Daubert Cromwell (Alsip, Illinois) has expanded its volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) film operations by opening a new plant in Slovakia.
The new extruder’s broad range and proximity to the group’s European customer base improves the supply chain of VCI films to a fast-growing region, according to the company.
“Opening this plant in Slovakia is a significant step in our growth and evolution as the leader in the field of VCI packaging and corrosion prevention,” says CEO Martin J. Simpson. “We can now provide our specialized products and services seamlessly and effectively to metal fabricators and producers throughout Europe.”
The Slovakia plant will manufacture the company’s globally tested brands of VCI films used in automotive, heavy equipment, steel, and all types of fabricated metal operations.
“Our plant in Slovakia, led by a team of experienced and dedicated manufacturing professionals, in conjunction with [our] existing assets and capabilities in Europe, ensure that we can adequately meet the growing demands of our customers throughout Europe,” Simpson says.
The expansion is the latest move by the company to make its products available to global customers more efficiently by manufacturing locally and providing more direct technical support. In addition to the group’s headquarters near Chicago, Illinois, the company has other manufacturing sites in Brazil, China, and India, as well as offices in Germany, Belgium, and Mexico.
The company offers a full line of proprietary corrosion inhibitor films, papers, and rust-preventive liquids.
