Italy’s REPI S.p.A., a producer of liquid color and additive concentrates, plans to build a facility in Gastonia, N.C. The $5.5-million, 30,000 ft2 plant is due to start up by the fourth quarter. The company has had a sales office in Charlotte, N.C., since 2004. It’s been serving PUR markets, but now will be able to expand into thermoplastic applications such as soft-drink bottles and cosmetic packaging.
