Lindal Group has finalized its plan to expand in the U.S. market by building a $20 million manufacturing facility in Columbus.
The company, a worldwide leader in aerosol packaging, has been considering the move to a single manufacturing building since 2015, when the company with global roots announced it might try to put its three current facilities in Columbus under one roof.
The new 100,000-square-foot facility, which is being designed to be expandable, will be located on 15 acres in the Woodside Northwest Industrial Park on land designated as the Booher extension, which is south of Deaver Road and east of County Road 300W.
The Peterson Co., LLC, Indianapolis, has been chosen to build the facility. Groundbreaking at the site is planned this spring.
The building would replace Lindal’s current manufacturing building and office building at 4775 and 4615 Progress Drive, and a warehouse in Hope, company officials said in earlier interviews.
The new facility will include production, offices, laboratories and warehousing, all on the same industrial campus, said Philip Brand, the company’s global marketing director.
Lindal Group develops and manufactures valves, actuators and spray caps for aerosol products used in cosmetics, household, pharmaceuticals, food and technical industries.
