Sheboygan-based Rockline Industries, one of the world’s largest private-label manufacturers of consumer wet wipes and coffee filters, has announced that it has acquired a 240,000-square-foot facility on a 30-acre site in Russellville, Ark. to continue its expansion plans.
In October, the company announced it will build an 18,000-square-foot state-of-the-art Innovation and Technical Center adjacent to its corporate headquarters in Sheboygan. It will include laboratories with microbiological and analytical chemistry capabilities and pilot line converting equipment.
The Arkansas site, the company’s third in the state, will perform contract manufacturing of private label products, for which consumer demand has been growing, the company said.
Rockline currently has four U.S. manufacturing facilities in Sheboygan, Arkansas and New Jersey. It also has international operations in England and South China. Rockline employs about 2,000 people.
“Rockline’s purchase of the Russellville site will help our company better serve the needs of our customers and accommodate our company’s rapid growth in contract manufacturing and private label products,” said Nick Santoleri, vice president of operations.
