Integrated packaging services provider Pro Mach division Brenton Engineering has announced the expansion of its Center of Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence in Alexandria, Minnesota, US.

The expansion will add 25,000ft², providing additional manufacturing capacity required to test sophisticated end-of-line systems.

Growth will also be accommodated in the company's packaging machinery solutions business, including Brenton case packers and robotics, Currie by Brenton palletisers and Orion stretch wrappers.

The expansion has been fueled by the continued growth experienced by the company since 2007 when it made its first 85,000ft² addition to the facility.

Pro Mach president and CEO Mark Anderson said: "Pro Mach is proud of their past success and to support another project to strengthen Brenton's position for advancement in the packaging industry and Alexandria community."

Pro Mach sales vice president Jason Enninga said that the additional space will allow the company to meet existing and future demands for the Brenton, Currie and Orion product lines.

"We are committed to our customers and their growing demand for our products," Enninga added.

Set to begin in July, construction is slated for completion in the autumn.
