Scott Bader has invested US$16 million in a new production site in Mocksville, North Carolina.

The investment sees the acquisition of a 110,000 ft2 industrial unit on a 15-acre site, which with further investment will be developed into a gelcoat and structural adhesives manufacturing facility, the company said. It will be the company’s second North American manufacturing site and could create 27 new jobs locally.

According to Scott Bader, the environmental impact of the new plant has been a key consideration.
