Drytac, an international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the print, label, and industrial markets, is moving its Canadian operations to Brampton, Ont.
The new premises spans more than 6503.2 m2 (70,000 sf) and consolidates Drytac’s manufacturing and distribution into one building.
According to the company, the move will improve efficiency and will accommodate the entire Canadian workforce. The move will take place in stages to ensure uninterrupted material supply and production.
The space also provides increased production and converting capacity for both roll and sheet products, 9.8-m (32-ft) high ceilings to allow storage of raw materials and finished goods to keep up with demand, 10 dock-level loading bays, and easier access from a major highway.
The building follows year-on-year growth since the acquisition of MultiTac in 2013, with more expansion predicted. The site will feature improved research and development (R&D) facilities to support Drytac’s market-leading innovations in adhesive science, while a demonstration centre and graphics academy are planned for the future.
“The new building in Brampton signals Drytac’s continued growth while improving overall efficiency and strengthening the Drytac team,” said the company’s CEO Hayden Kelley. “The phased move will ensure our customers receive uninterrupted service—only enhanced products and support.”
