ESKA USA ANNOUNCES MOVE TO SUFFOLK, VIRGINIA, USA

20-12-2023

The relocation and additional investments signify ESKA USA’s commitment to not only expanding its production capabilities but also contributing to the development of Suffolk, Virginia

ESKA USA, a renowned 140-year-old manufacturer which is part of RDM Group, is thrilled to announce its relocation and expansion in Suffolk, Virginia.

 

Seeking to expand its operations, ESKA USA will be moving existing machinery, material, and operations to a brand new facility in Suffolk, Virginia. Eska USA also plans a significant investment in machinery upon settling in Suffolk. This new, larger, and more efficient facility will enable Eska USA to continue delivering on our promise to deliver the highest quality solidboard and logistics experience to our customers. For Eska USA, this is not only a move but also a commitment to long-term strategic growth in the United States and Western Hemisphere.

 

This is consistent with RDM Group’s growth plan, which, following the acquisition of ESKA, also has great ambitions for the U.S. market. RDM Group is the leading producer in the recycled carton board business and the largest producer in Italy, France, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and the Iberian Peninsula. While coated board is mainly supplied to the European market, solid board is a leading segment worldwide including The United States and Asia. ESKA USA represents one of its four sheeting centers, the only one in the Unites States.

 

ESKA USA’s decision to relocate to Suffolk is indicative of the City of Suffolk’s commitment to providing a business-friendly atmosphere and the space necessary for businesses tied to The Port of Virginia to expand and grow. In anticipation of this move, Suffolk Mayor Michael Duman expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “ESKA USA’s decision to relocate its operations to Suffolk is a testament to our city’s appeal as a destination for global businesses. We welcome ESKA USA and are excited about the economic opportunities and job prospects this move brings to our community.” Stephen A. Edwards, CEO and Executive Director of The Virginia Port Authority also commented that “ESKA USA’s move to Suffolk’s Coastal Logistics Center is representative of how The Port of Virginia’s $1.4 billion capital plan is serving as a catalyst for companies to accelerate their business operations within our region,” He further added, “The result is more business for the port and more jobs and economic investment for Virginia. We look forward to continuing our partnership with ESKA USA while helping it continue to leverage and utilize America’s most modern gateway.”

 

ESKA USA’s relocation will not only enhance its production capacity and technological capabilities but also contribute significantly to the local economy by creating job opportunities and fostering community development. ESKA USA has already confirmed a commitment to job creation and economic growth in the region.
