H.B. Fuller Co. recently announced the opening of a new $10 million manufacturing facility to support the expansion of its business in the Andean Region of South America. The 20,770-sq-m plant is located in Rionegro, approximately 36 km east of Medellin, Colombia. The new site will reportedly provide increased production capacity, a new technical laboratory for hygienic products and better access to the country’s second-largest airport.

“This facility represents a continued commitment to our customers, shareholders, local community and to our employees, who have worked so hard to bring this investment to life,” said Traci Jensen, senior vice president for the Americas Region. “It is a sign of the important role this business and geography play in our strategic plan for the region and for H.B. Fuller.”
