Döhler North America has begun its Cartersville, Georgia, plant expansion. To mark the initiation of the Cartersville plant expansion, a ceremony was conducted in January designed to signify Döhler's commitment to fortify its presence in the North American flavor industry.
The first phase of the Döhler's expansion of its Cartersville plant is said to not only address immediate growth needs but also lay the foundation for future expansions. The Cartersville facility will host advanced production lines and technological R&D labs, with a specific focus on compounds, liquid Flavors, extractions and syrups.
Paul Graham, general manager of Regional Cluster Americas, emphasizes the strategic significance of the expansion, stating, "The Cartersville plant has been an integral part of Döhler's success in North America for over a decade. This expansion reflects our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of our customers, and it positions us for even greater accomplishments in the future."
Charles Spenceley, head of Operations Regional Cluster Americas, adds, "We are excited about the potential this expansion brings. It enlarges our capacity for hot fill bottling and increases our flavor production capacity. This significant boost in capability enables us to better serve our customers and solidify our position as industry leaders."
Döhler plans to continue its investment across the Americas region adding an automated flavor compounding and sampling system to its taste innovation hub in North Brunswick, New Jersey, and a bigger version of it to their Cartersville plant. This system, which is said to be capable of transforming raw materials into flavor samples in just a minute, will be complemented by artificial intelligence developments from Germany.
