Food packaging company Brodrene Hartmann intends to set up its new manufacturing centre at Rolla, Missouri, US.

The Denmark-based company will be investing nearly $30m for the new facility, which will be used to produce moulded-fibre egg cartons for the US market.

The firm will be manufacturing the sustainable cartons at the 334,000ft² centre with recycled newspaper sourced from the Midwest.

In order to ensure the scheduled start of the plant operations early next year, the firm will be initiating hiring for the facility later this year.

Missouri governor Jay Nixon said: "Global companies know Missouri is a perfect place to reach key markets and grow their business.

"We will gain access to a larger share of the market and have a solid foundation for expanding the business."

"Missouri’s manufacturing industry contributes billions to our economy while providing good paying jobs for Missouri families."

Brodrene Hartmann CEO Ulrik Kolding Hartvig said: "By increasing production capacity and presence in North America, we will gain access to a larger share of the market and have a solid foundation for expanding the business."

The company has carried out site selection for the new facility and transaction management in coordination with its business and real estate advisers at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.

Operating since 1917, Hartmann is a leading moulded-fibre egg packaging manufacturer worldwide.

The firm also offers fruit packaging solutions in South America and manufacturing machinery for producing moulded-fibre packaging.

It expects the new location to drive its future growth and intends to double its investment at the centre in the next six years.
