    July 18th 2023

    Ecublens, Switzerland: – Materials handling and process specialist Dec Group has opened its new state-of-the-art production facility for North America at Mauston, Wisconsin. The entire Extract Technology team has relocated from its previous location in New Lisbon.

    The ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Mauston plant took place mid-June 2023 and was attended by Dec Group co-founders Yves & Frederic Dietrich and Andrew Milner, CEO Dec-USA, Inc., along with members from the original founding Walker family, formerly Walker Barrier Systems, the Mayor of Mauston and representatives of the local Chamber of Commerce.

    Highly contained and aseptic working environments

    The celebration marked the official inauguration of Dec’s manufacturing facility in North America designed to meet the industries demands for Mobile Clean Rooms (MCR), high containment and aseptic solutions as well as nuclear grade containment equipment.  The event, which culminated in an evening of celebration for all employees and their families, demonstrated a significant milestone in Dec’s company history.

    Investment program

    Since Extract Technology joined Dec Group in 2021, it has seen considerable investment, including substantial expansion at its headquarters site near Huddersfield in the UK. During that time, the management team has been working hard to ramp up its capabilities to meet expanding demand.

    Mauston has become Dec’s second location in the USA, underlining its status as the only Europe-based supplier of pharma and chemical process solutions to provide full organic manufacturing as well as aftermarket support in North America.

    “We’re thrilled about the possibilities our new facility presents and confident to continue to deliver the exceptional products and services our customers expect from us,” the company’s Global Marketing & Communication Manager Gabriela Mikhaiel added.
