DOYLESTOWN, PA. (June 3, 1 p.m. ET) — Color concentrates maker Penn Color will open its new plant in Milton, Wis., by the end of June — only a few months after adding concentrates production to a plant in Venray, the Netherlands.

The 50,000-square-foot Milton plant will employ 12-15 and represents an investment of almost $2 million. The site will make color concentrates for use in cups, toys and other products, officials with Doylestown, Pa.-based Penn Color said.

In the Netherlands, Penn Color earlier this year completed a 15,000 square-foot addition to an inks and coatings plant it already had operated there, industry manager Bob Kaminski said in a June 3 phone interview. Previously, the firm had supplied the European market with color concentrates made at its U.S. locations. The expansion will allow Penn Color to create 8-10 jobs, Kaminski said.

Adding the two new concentrates sites gives Penn Color five such sites worldwide, with the two new ones joining production plants in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Georgia. Privately held Penn Color does not disclose annual sales. The firm employs 600.
