MULTIVAC continues to develop new products and services that meet the changing needs of the packaging industry.  In the past two years, regional sales offices have been opened in California and New Jersey to bring sales coverage and service closer to the customer.  Another regional office is scheduled to open in North Carolina in the summer of 2016.  Additionally, the U.S. headquarters is currently renovating the offices in Kansas City to include a 32,000 square-foot addition. This allows MULTIVAC to further expand upon manufacturing capabilities. The renovation will include a new, state-of-the-art innovation and demonstration area, allowing customers to have hands-on experience with new and emerging MULTIVAC equipment, as well as serving as a training facility for new and returning customers.
