According to CEO Bart Van Malderen, the new investment has enabled the Belgium-based company to increase its workforce and annual sales by more than half. The capacity from the new site is already sold out and the company plans to add automated warehousing to the site next year.
In addition to baby diapers, the plants produce incontinence materials which are supplied to both retailers and healthcare providers.
Drylock officially opened the new plant in early May at an event that included a ribbon cutting and plant tour. The expansion is part of an ambitious European investment, announced by DryLock in April 2018, which also included construction of a new site in Segovia, Spain. The €200 million investment was reportedly largely prompted by the success of its Magic Tubes channel technology. The Segovia site opened earlier this year.
