Vienna, Austria / Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 9 June 2022 – “Fully confident
that investing in the ongoing growth of the Semperit Group within the
world’s biggest economic region will be critical to our future success, we
are being driven by a market-led approach, focusing more on practical
applications, and speeding up our product development processes,” says CEO
Karl Haider at the official opening ceremony for the new North America
headquarters and production site for rubber gaskets in the USA. 

In line with the strategic commitment to customer proximity, the Semperit
Executive Board made the decision two years ago to invest around USD 10
million (EUR 9.4 million) into the installation of two new production
lines as well as the relocation of the existing headquarters and
distribution centre for North America from Stone Mountain to Newnan within
the state of Georgia. Although the new site has been in operation for a
few months already, the coronavirus pandemic meant that the opening
ceremony was delayed until today, with the Mayor Pro Tem of Newnan and
representatives from Coweta County and the local chamber of commerce in

With its distribution centre having been based in the region for almost 40
years, the Semperit Group has been recording impressive growth in North
and South America in recent years. “By shifting our focus to the local
level, we’re in a much better position to respond to our customers’
ever-increasing needs with improved speed and efficiency,” says Irene
Coughlin, Managing Director Americas. “The new headquarters and production
site will boost the efficiency of our operations once again, allowing us
to manage our supply chains and logistics more effectively. This will also
tighten up our communications at the regional level.”
The site spanning 14,000 square metres at the Coweta County Industrial
Park has created 70 new jobs and is being supplied entirely by renewable
energy sources in line with the Semperit Group’s goals to protect the
environment, reduce waste, and cut down on energy consumption. It is home
to administrative offices, production lines for sealing components
including building facade seals, window gaskets, and road and bridge
expansion joints, as well as distribution space for the full range of
sealants, conveyor belts, and hose products.
