Construction of the 15,000 sq ft facility in Louisville began on January 1st, and the first case erector is expected to roll off the new line by early June.

The factory addition is a result of substantial growth in the demand for Lantech’s case erecting and tray forming equipment in recent years, and will shorten equipment lead times as well as bring more expertise and better support to their customers in the US.

“Lantech has always provided innovative, high-value equipment to customers looking to improve the quality of their transportation related packaging,” says Jim Lancaster, CEO of Lantech. “This investment will provide faster deliveries, faster answers to questions, and will continue to improve Lantech’s responsiveness to support needs both prior to, and after the purchase of equipment by American facilities.”

The new factory is located behind Lantech’s main office and manufacturing facility. This building, along with another office in Bluegrass Industrial Park, were purchased in 2022 to enable Lantech’s Louisville-based North American manufacturing and operations expansion. Production in this factory will begin with the assembly of Lantech’s entry level case erector, and has filled 12 new job positions to get production underway. The number of employees will expand as plans to manufacture their very popular modular, highspeed machines begin next year.

Lantech’s Lean Manufacturing Principles has allowed them to not only set up the new factory quickly, but will also ensure that the exceptional quality of the equipment that customers have come to expect will remain the same.
