Rockline to open innovation and technical center

November 4, 2013

Rockline Industries, a private-label manufacturer of consumer wet wipes and coffee filters, will open an 18,000 square foot state-of-the-art Innovation and technical center adjacent to its corporate headquarters in Sheboygan, WI.

Product development teams working at the center will focus on consumer wet wipe innovation, as well as product, packaging and test method developments, the company says. Its newly designed 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,” says Randy Rudolph, president, Rockline Industries. “We will also be able to strengthen our technical leadership, while improving speed to market.”

The new innovation and technical center expands upon the existing research and development centers located in Arkansas and England. Rockline anticipates the facility to be open by fall 2014.
