Grand opening of new plastics packaging facility in Hutchins, Texas, USA
Katoen Natie is proud to announce the opening of our new plastics packaging facility in Hutchins, Texas. Along with the Union Pacific Railroad, Katoen Natie held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at our new plastics packaging facility in the Prime Pointe Industrial Park just outside Dallas.
The facility features 262.000 square feet of warehouse space, 220 hopper car spots and a high-speed FFS packagine line (270KTA capacity). The property can support expansions to upwards of 2,5 million square feet, 700 hopper car spots and over 1 million tons of packaging capacity per year.
The location will enable our customers to diversify export channels to global markets utilizing the Dallas-to-Dock intermodal service. This site will also allow our customers to ship up to 25.5 metric tons per 40’ container, which is an added benefit!
Katoen Natie North America President Frank Vingerhoets adds: ”With this new Dallas-to-Dock location we continue to expand our local and international network of logistic hubs. It will provide our customers an alternative export solution and a back up to their current export flows.”
