CCL Tube, a division of CCL Industries, announced it will relocate its Los Angeles manufacturing plant to a purpose built 101,340 sq. ft. Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certified building in July 2008. Under construction now, with final build-out scheduled for early July 2008, the building utilizes renewable and reclaimed materials, and has the goal to provide healthy, comfortable and productive indoor spaces while reducing energy costs, landscape maintenance costs and increasing employee productivity.
Beginning in early July 2008, CCL Tube will run simultaneous manufacturing operations and anticipates a final move-in end of September 2008. CCL, in cooperation with its machinery partners, will install the first of several newly purchased; high efficient, high-speed tube production lines thereby increasing CCL’s annual output by another 50MM.
“With this new machinery and new building we will start increasing tube capacity by 50% while significantly decreasing energy usage,” said Andy Iseli, CCL Tube’s Los Angeles general manager. “This building, along with our equipment upgrades, highlights CCL’s commitment to quality, service and innovation. Every day, we look for ways to increase production while decreasing our environmental footprint and production costs, not only for ourselves, but for our customers too.”
