Labelmaker UPM Raflatac opens plant in Illinois, April 4th 2008

A Finnish manufacturer of self-adhesive labels has opened a $100 million manufacturing plant in Dixon, Ill., setting up a Midwestern hub as part of a $270 million global expansion program.

UPM Raflatac said Thursday that the Dixon facility covers 60 acres and will employ 180 people. The company makes self-adhesive labels for consumer packaging and mail and prints labels with bar codes and radio-frequency identification, or RFID, chips that are used for inventory and shipping.
