Rockline Industries, one of the world’s largest private-label manufacturers of consumer wet wipes and coffee filters, announced today that it will open a state-of-the-art Innovation and Technical Center adjacent to its corporate headquarters in Sheboygan.
Product development teams working at the center will focus on consumer wet wipe innovation, as well as product, packaging and test method developments. The 18,000-square-foot facility will feature laboratories equipped with microbiological and analytical chemistry capabilities, and pilot line converting equipment.
“Our immediate objective is to continue supporting customers with cutting-edge products,” said Randy Rudolph, president of Rockline Industries. “We will also be able to strengthen our technical leadership, while improving speed to market.”
The new Innovation and Technical Center will expand upon the existing research and development centers located in Arkansas and England. Rockline anticipates the facility to be open by fall 2014.
