SHEBOYGAN – Rockline Industries will expand into a newly acquired 240,000-square-foot facility in Russellville, Ark., the company announced Tuesday.

The purchase of the facility aligns with the growth strategy to meet the increasing needs of contract manufacturing and for the consumer demand of private label products, according to the announcement.

“Rockline’s purchase of the Russellville site will help our company better serve the needs of our customers and accommodate our company’s rapid growth in contract manufacturing and private label products,” said Nick Santoleri, vice president of operations, Rockline Industries, in a statement.

Rockline operates four U.S. manufacturing plants in Arkansas, New Jersey and Wisconsin.

In October, Rockline announced the opening of a state-of-the-art Innovation and Technical Center adjacent to its corporate headquarters in Sheboygan. That 18,000 square foot facility will feature laboratories equipped with microbiological and analytical chemistry capabilities, and pilot line converting equipment.

Rockline Industries was founded in 1976 and is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of coffee filters and consumer, health care, industrial and institutional wet wipes.
